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 heating systems, building heating systems and flame weed control systems.

Sponsored by PERC, the Propane Farm Incentive 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 that farmers can experience the many benefits of propane technology with upfront savings.

“The Propane Farm Incentive Program provides an excellent opportunity for producers to save even more on the purchase of cost-saving, highly efficient, and environmentally friendly propane-powered equipment,” said Mike Newland, director of agriculture 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, so we encourage interested producers to apply now to take advantage of these savings.”
