PERC incentivizes construction, rental pros to adopt propane products

June 4, 2014 By    

The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) says it is helping construction and rental professionals demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and save money.

Purchasers of Kohler’s new propane-powered mobile generators or Magnum’s MLT4000S solar hybrid light tower can receive significant incentives that make the equipment more affordable, according to a PERC press release.

The mobile generators and light tower are the latest products 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 use.

Construction and rental professionals can receive $1,000 to $8,500 toward the purchase of a propane-fueled Kohler mobile generator through the incentive program. Developed in cooperation with PERC, the 125REZGT model is currently available, with other propane-powered models to be introduced in the future. The 125REZGT features an on-board propane tank, providing power even when an on-site LP gas supply isn’t available.

A $3,500 incentive is available on purchases of the MLT4000S solar hybrid light tower from Magnum Power Products. During the day, a solar-panel array charges the light tower’s batteries for nighttime operation. If cloudy or inclement weather prevents the batteries from fully charging, a propane-powered Generac generator turns on automatically and recharges the batteries until the solar panels can take over.

Participants in the incentive program agree to share their experiences, giving PERC valuable information to identify training needs and supplement future propane product development.
