Propane HomePro Website Wins National Design Award

The Propane HomePro website was recognized nationally in the 20th annual American Web Design Awards, sponsored by Graphic Design USA. More than 2000 entries were submitted in the national web design competition and only an elite top 10% were selected as winners.

The new website from MOPERC (Missouri Propane Education & Research Council) showcases propane homes in Missouri, sharing inspirational stories and videos, image galleries, progress photos, as well as builder plans. The HomePro website also shares information about featured propane appliances and more information about MOPERC’s innovative new Propane HomePro program. To view the award-winning website, go to

This new website is one of the core components of the new Propane HomePro program, which brings the complete home benefits of propane appliances to life in new, modern, and luxurious home construction projects across the state of Missouri. It also highlights all the advantages of building homes powered by propane and the opportunity to live the propane lifestyle, with benefits including superior home performance, efficiency, and comfort.

“One of the goals of the Propane HomePro program is to provide opportunities to talk to homebuilders and their customers about all the amenities that propane can provide,” said Steve Ahrens, president of MOPERC. 

“In Missouri, about 9% of homes are heated with propane. That is higher than the national average, but we still find that a lot of people are not familiar with propane,” Ahrens added. “They may know about natural gas, or just default to electricity. But the fact is that propane really brings them so much more in terms of livability, economics, and efficiencies, and we are finding a very receptive audience when we talk about propane homes. We’re proud to have this award-winning website available to help tell our story.”
