WASHINGTON (August 2019) — The Propane Education & Research Council and the Nebraska Propane Gas Association invite farmers to view new propane-powered equipment, including a live irrigation engine demonstration, and earn up to $10,750 in incentives toward the purchase of new propane-powered engines at Husker Harvest Days, Sept. 10-12 in Grand Island, Nebraska.
This year’s booth will feature several models of new propane-powered irrigation engines, including Industrial Irrigation’s new Reliable Horsepower engine line, engines from Husker Power Products and Anderson Industrial Engines, as well as a dual-fuel engine from ASR. There will also be live, water pumping demonstrations of a new Reliable Horsepower engine to give attendees a firsthand look of the engine’s power and efficiency.
Additional propane-powered equipment, including standby generators, propane grills, and a propane pick-up from Otte Oil & Propane, will also be on display at the Nebraska Propane Gas Association booth (No. 654) located on West Fifth Street.
“We’re looking forward to showcasing several new pieces of propane-powered equipment at this year’s show and helping farmers take advantage of additional savings through our Propane Farm Incentive Program,” said Mike Newland, director of agriculture business development at PERC. “PERC is currently running a limited-time double incentive program, offering up to $10,000 instead of the usual $5,000, to farmers affected by recent Midwest flooding. We recognize the toll flooding has had on many farmers in the area, so we hope that these additional savings can offer a small relief in these difficult circumstances.”
PERC’s Propane Farm Incentive Program offers up to $5,000, or $10,000 for those taking advantage of the double incentive program, toward the purchase of qualifying propane-powered irrigation engines and other equipment. The Nebraska PGA also offers an extra $750 incentive to producers who irrigate in Nebraska adding up to a potential $10,750 available to show attendees interested in purchasing new propane-powered irrigation engines.
Manufacturer representatives, as well Nebraska PGA and PERC representatives, will also be on-site to discuss the benefits of propane agricultural equipment, answer questions, and provide information on national and state incentives available toward equipment purchases.
