The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) announces the launch of its Propane Heat & Power Incentive Program, a nationwide research initiative that is designed to encourage the adoption of new energy-efficient propane-fueled products by homeowners and business owners.

In exchange for reporting performance data on six qualifying products, participants can receive up to $10,000 toward the purchase of premium generator sets, micro-combined heat and power (micro-CHP) systems, and pest control heat treatment technology. Business owners and homeowners can apply for up to two qualifying products. Feedback will be used to supplement future product development and research.

“Propane is a clean-burning, American-made fuel that can help business owners and homeowners lower heating and electric bills while potentially increasing the value of their homes or properties,” Bridget Scanlon, director of residential and commercial programs at PERC, said. “The Propane Heat & Power Incentive Program lowers the initial purchase cost on new propane-fueled products, enabling more homes and businesses to experience the advantages of propane.”

The six featured products in the Propane Heat & Power Incentive Program include the Kohler 6VSG and Generac EcoGen 6 kW generators; Marathon Ecopower, Yanmar CP5WN, and Yanmar CP10WN micro-CHP systems; and Temp-Air Thermal Remediation pest control system.
