How to Save Money When Purchasing Propane Farm Equipment

Propane-powered farm equipment is already known for being cost-saving, highly efficient, and environmentally friendly. Now, add the 2019 Propane Farm Incentive Program and farmers can save even more on their purchase.

From 2016 to 2018, the Propane Farm Incentive Program has contributed nearly $355,000 toward the purchase of 134 pieces of equipment now hard at work on American farms across the country.

Sponsored by the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), the Propane Farm Incentive Program is a research program that provides a financial incentive up to $5,000 toward the purchase of new propane-powered farm equipment. In exchange, participants agree to share real-world performance data with PERC.

Eligible equipment includes irrigation engines, generators, water heating systems, building heating systems, and flame weed control systems.
