Propane Mower Incentive Program Expected to Expire in April

March 15, 2016 – Time is running out for to take advantage of the Propane Mower Incentive Program from the Propane Education & Research Council. PERC officials expect available program funds to expire at the end of April.

The Mower Incentive Program gives a $1,000 rebate to applicants for each commercial propane mower purchase and $500 for each qualified propane conversion kit.

‘Since the incentive program was made available again in October of 2015, we’ve seen a lot of interest throughout the commercial landscape industry,’ said Jeremy Wishart, deputy director of business development for PERC. ‘If current application rates hold steady, we expect the program to sunset by the end of April, though we hope to roll it out again in the future.’

In 2012, the PERC first offered professional lawn care businesses the $1,000 in financial assistance to help reduce the up-front costs associated with purchasing a new propane mower, or $500 for a qualified conversion. After a hiatus during the summer of 2015, the program was opened again in October, and PERC made available another $1 million in program funds starting Jan. 1, 2016.

Since its inception four years ago, the program has helped more than 3,500 machines operating on propane enter the marketplace.
