This LP tank was installed at a customer’s home for their 20kw Generac generator, along with a cook top line and a backyard BBQ. Because this customer was looking to use the LP tank for a cook top line, backyard BBQ, and to fuel their generator in the event of a power outage, a 500 gallon tank was a great choice.

500 gallon LP tanks can be used for an all-propane home, or homes that require a lot of heat.
