Inter Island Propane Open for Business!

October 2016

Donny Galt of Ace Hardware and Jimmie Lawson of Jim’s Heating have partnered together to create a new business offering propane to the islands. 

“With the recent buyout of VanderYacht Propane by AmeriGas (DBA San Juan Propane) we both realized the importance of a new option for the residents of San Juan County” says Donny. “As we both came to the partnership table we realized how valuable we will be as partners. Jimmie’s 30+ years in the heating and cooling business and my 30+ years in a variety of entrepreneur ventures has created, in my opinion, a perfect match for a new propane sales ans service business.”

2 new propane trucks and a large assortment of propane tanks have arrived. The storage facility is nearing completion and the large storage tank should arrive within the next couple of weeks. They hope to begin delivering propane at the end of October on San Juan Island.

January 1st, 2023:  In 2021, Governor Inslee and the Washington Legislature passed the Climate Commitment Act (or CCA) which establishes a comprehensive, market-based program to reduce carbon pollution and achieve the greenhouse gas limits set in state law.


With that, effective January 1st, 2023 Washington State Legislature has rolled out   “The Cap and Invest” program. This program aims to set a limit on overall carbon emissions in the State and requires businesses to obtain allowances equal to covered greenhouse gas emissions through quarterly regulated auctions. This program has increased the price of gasoline, diesel, natural gas and propane throughout the state. Your current invoice reflects this new incremental price increase. The state will be performing regulated “auctions” quarterly. We will remain diligent evaluating this program and passing on this information to our customers.
