Save up to $5K on propane-powered equipment

Propane Education & Research Council announces farm incentive program.

The Propane Education & Research Council encourages producers to take advantage of the 2019 Propane Farm Incentive Program, which offers up to $5,000 off of qualifying propane-powered equipment, including irrigation engines, generators, water and building heating systems, and flame weed-control systems.

Sponsored by PERC, the program is a nationwide research and demonstration initiative that offers farmers financial incentives toward the purchase of new propane-powered farm equipment, in exchange for sharing feedback and real-world performance data. The program helps offset the cost of new agricultural equipment, so farmers can experience the many benefits of propane technology with upfront savings. 

More reasons to make switch
The program helps make the switch to propane even easier. “This program provides an excellent opportunity for farmers to save even more on the purchase of cost-saving, highly efficient and environmentally-friendly propane-powered equipment,” says Mike Newland, director of ag business development at PERC. “At the same time, it benefits PERC by providing helpful performance data that helps us to continue to make improvements as needed. We have a limited amount of funds available. We encourage interested producers to apply now to take advantage of these savings.”
