The Propane Education & Research Council is making it more affordable for off-grid homes that use alternative-energy systems to get the reliable backup power they need. Purchasers of Generac’s new propane-powered 15kW EcoGen standby generator may be eligible to receive a $2,000 incentive from PERC, making it possible for them to maintain their commitment to sustainability and save money at the same time.
This new generator is the latest product to be included in PERC’s Propane Heat & Power Incentive Program, which encourages construction professionals, homeowners, and businesses to adopt new propane-fueled products for residential and commercial uses.
PERC provided Generac with funding and support for the development of the new 15kW EcoGen. This particular generator is specifically designed and warrantied for use with the wind- or solar-powered alternative-energy systems found in many off-grid homes.
“Because propane is an efficient, low-carbon alternative fuel, it complements the sustainable, environmentally friendly values championed at many off-grid residential sites,” said Bridget Kidd, PERC’s director of residential and commercial programs. “By offering this financial incentive, PERC hopes to help these homeowners obtain reliable backup power that supports their desire for a cleaner environment.”
The Propane Heat & Power Incentive Program provides a financial incentive to qualifying and select participants who purchase and use eligible propane-fueled products such as premium generator sets, combined heat and power systems, hybrid light towers, and mobile generators. In return, participants agree to share their experiences, giving PERC valuable information to identify training needs and supplement future propane product development.
