Calor LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is used as an alternative to mains gas in rural off grid areas across the UK – with thousands of homes enjoying the benefits of its efficiency, versatility, controllability, convenience and green credentials.
If you live in the countryside and have no access to mains gas, you can enjoy all the benefits of gas with Calor, providing you with a clean, controllable and reliable fuel source for central heating, hot water, cooking and gas fires.
Cleaner and greener
Conventional LPG from Calor already offers rural homeowners the lowest carbon emissions of all fossil fuels available to off-grid homeowners – emitting 20% less carbon than oil when burnt.
However, with Calor BioLPG, available exclusively from ourselves you can now go even greener. BioLPG an innovative new form of liquefied petroleum gas created from a mix of renewable and sustainably sourced raw materials. It allows you to fuel your home whilst reducing your carbon footprint from home heating by at least 38% compared to heating oil.
BioLPG is chemically identical to conventional LPG so it works with standard LPG systems, boilers and appliances, which are often more cost-effective to install than oil or renewable systems. Getting supplies of BioLPG is easy too as, just like a standard LPG delivery service, Calor will deliver BioLPG straight to your home when required.
Out of sight storage
Our tanks are also fitted with clever auto top up technology which tells us when you need a delivery of gas – so you don’t have to monitor or re- order your gas. From a security point of view, oil thefts from oil tanks are very common, whereas it is impossible to steal gas from a tank.

March 2019 Update
Calor offers £70,000 of funding for rural community projects
Rural community projects throughout the UK* could be eligible to receive grants of up to £5,000 from home energy provider Calor.
The Calor Rural Community Fund – now in its third year – aims to reward deserving community projects with prize pots ranging from £1,000 to £5,000. This year’s scheme is bigger and better than ever before, with Calor giving away 21 grants totalling a staggering £70,000. The amount of £5,000 donations has also been doubled from last year – with a total of 10 up for grabs. Rural communities off the mains gas grid can submit their projects for funding, with previous winners including playground and village hall refurbishments, instruments for music banks and equipment for sports clubs.
Now, Calor is encouraging anyone who thinks their project may be eligible to come forward and submit an application for consideration to this year’s Calor Rural Community Fund. The projects that receive the most votes by the public will be shortlisted and then reviewed by a panel of judges, who will select the final 21 winners. Partnering with Crowdfunder for 2019, Calor also is pledging £2,000 worth of match funding to approved entries that use the fund-raising platform to raise donations for their community project.
Jason Nuttall, Head of Funding for Crowdfunder, comments: “We’re really excited to be partnering with the Calor Rural Community Fund. The match funding will give so many projects that extra boost toward meeting their goals and it’s great to be a part of a scheme that is making such a difference to so many rural communities across the UK.”
Paul Blacklock, Head of Corporate Affairs for Calor, adds: “As a company with off-grid communities at the heart of everything we do, it’s extremely important that we champion rural projects and the people and places behind them. Over the past two years, we’ve seen the Calor Rural Community Fund have an amazing impact on local communities throughout the UK, and we want this to grow year on year.”
This year’s Calor Rural Community Fund will be open for applications from 5 March – 29 April 2019. To find out how you can take part, please visit www.calor.co.uk/communityfund.

October 2018 Update
Snowdonia is the background for Calor advert
The popular Miners Track climb up Mount Snowdon and Cromlech Boulders, Snowdonia have been selected as picturesque backgrounds for an exciting new national advertising campaign.
Rural energy provider Calor gas chose the stunning vistas of Snowdonia for its print advert – ‘Karma’ – which promotes a more renewable form of LPG, BioLPG.
The ad is part of a wider campaign, ‘More than just Gas’, which celebrates the joy of everyday life and the wide range of uses for Calor gas in the home, from gas central heating creating a warm welcoming home, to also providing hot water and instant heat for cooking.
The advert features a lady in a yoga pose with the beauty of nature and clean air around her, portraying a sense of calm and inner peace which the Snowdonia backdrop depicts perfectly.
Ross Worthington from RAW Adventures Mountain Activities, based in Brynrefail, was the filming crew’s guide for the day, leading them safely through rough terrain and challenging conditions to get the perfect shots.
The messaging behind the ad is that good karma can be gained by rural homeowners who ‘go greener’ selecting BioLPG, which is kinder to the environment than other fossil fuels.
BioLPG, available exclusively from Calor, is created from a mix of renewable and sustainably sourced raw materials. This means that using BioLPG will reduce your carbon footprint for home heating by 38 per cent compared to heating oil1.
The print advert can be viewed in a range of self-build magazines such as Grand Designs, Homebuilding and Renovating and BuildIt.
