1 gallon of propane contains the same usable energy as 27 kWh (kilo-Watt hours) of electricity. What makes propane more environmentally-friendly than electricity is that it’s a primary source, whereas electricity is a secondary source. So even though electricity has no emissions, and propane has some (albeit clean ones), one must factor in electricity’s production methods. 49% of electricity in the US is made by burning coal (1). So in terms of environmental-friendliness, compare propane to electric power generation. If it’s made from coal, then propane is greener.
I personally use a propane stove and find it more efficient than an electric stove. But that’s not science; it’s just an opinion.
