PERC reopens Propane Mower Incentive Program

October 27, 2016

PERC_logoThe Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) reopened online applications for the Propane Mower Incentive Program. Since it began in 2012, PERC said the program has helped commercial propane mower operators save up to $1,000 on the purchase of a new unit, before factoring in the long-term benefits of using propane.

“The incentive helps landscape contractors save on the upfront cost of a new propane mower, but the long-term savings contractors benefit from when operating a propane fleet can be tremendous, too,” said Jeremy Wishart, deputy director of business development at PERC. “Compared to gasoline and diesel equipment, propane mowers can not only reduce a contractor’s ongoing fuel costs, but they can also lead to less maintenance-related downtime.”

Users can apply for incentives of $1,000 for the purchase of a new propane mower or $500 to convert an existing machine with a qualified conversion kit.

The program has swapped out more than 4,000 gasoline mowers in favor of propane. Contractors who have switched their fleets to propane reported, on average, a 30 percent savings on the annual cost of fuel alone, on top of savings from the incentives, PERC said.
