RICHMOND, VA (March 2024) – The Propane Education & Research Council announces a new Double Propane Farm Incentive Program, offering up to $10,000 in savings on eligible propane-powered farm equipment for agricultural operations impacted by the recent Texas wildfires.

From now through December 31, 2024, affected producers in Texas and parts of Oklahoma who apply for the Propane Farm Incentive Program can earn double the incentive amount for qualifying propane-powered equipment. Eligible equipment includes irrigation engines, building/water heating systems, power generators, and flame weeding systems.

“Devastating wildfires like this can quickly cripple a farm’s operations and finances,” said Michael Newland, director of agriculture business development at PERC. “As producers work hard to recover and rebuild, we hope that this program can help replace essential equipment lost to the fires.”

With this program, applicants can receive twice the standard incentive amounts for $600 per liter of fuel displacement for propane-powered irrigation engines, up to $60/kW for generators, $3,000 for flame weeding systems, and $4,000 for agricultural heaters.

Applications will be verified by zip code and National Weather Service data. Apply now at
