The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) has reopened online applications for the Propane Mower Incentive Program. Since it began in 2012, the program has helped commercial propane mower operators save up to $1,000 on the purchase of a new unit, and that’s without factoring in the long-term benefits of using propane.
With the Propane Mower Incentive Program, landscape contractors, facilities managers, municipal fleet directors — and even homeowners — 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.
Throughout the life of the program, more than 4,000 gasoline mowers have been swapped out of fleets in favor of propane across 43 states. Applications for more than 600 mower purchases and conversions were received during the last iteration of the program, which ran from October 2015 to April 2016.
For equipment dealers, the Propane Mower Incentive Program also offers an easy way to introduce the topic of propane to customers looking to replace equipment at the end of the season.
