PERC_infographicThe Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) approved 1,307 Propane Mower Incentive Program applications from Oct. 1, 2014 to March 21, 2015, a six-month period in which the organization doubled incentive allotments.

During the double incentive period, landscape contractors could receive $2,000 incentives for each new propane mower purchase and $1,000 for every qualified conversion.

Over the six month double incentive period, the 1,307 applications were submitted by 382 landscape contractors in 43 states.

“The Mower Incentive Program is designed to assist landscape contractors with the upfront equipment costs associated with converting their fleets to propane,” said Jeremy Wishart, deputy director of business development at PERC. “Propane can lower operating costs and reduce emissions compared to traditional fuels, so it’s exciting to see so many contractors wanting to take advantages of those benefits, too.”

Since the program launched in 2012, a total of 2,941 applications have been submitted.
