PERC program now open to builders of all sizes

June 2, 2014 By    

The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) opened its Propane Energy Pod Builder Incentive Program to all builders. Previously, only companies building fewer than 75 homes each year could apply for consideration under the program’s guidelines.

“Since launching the Propane Energy Pod Builder Incentive Program back in February, we’ve received a significant amount of interest from larger residential building companies,” says Bridget Kidd, PERC’s director of residential and commercial programs, in a press release. “We realize that these larger builders have the potential to help even more homeowners discover the benefits of propane systems and appliances. After careful consideration, we’ve decided to expand the program so more builders can participate.”

According to a press release, the Propane Energy Pod Builder Incentive Program provides a financial incentive of up to $1,500 to qualifying and selected builders who construct homes that follow PERC’s Propane Energy Pod model. Homes built to Energy Pod specifications include a combination of propane applications for space heating, water heating, cooking, fireplaces, clothes drying and standby power.

Builders must be U.S. residents and at least 18 years old to qualify for the program. Each qualifying builder is limited to five incentives per year per state. Program participants are required to provide feedback on the propane-fueled appliances they use, giving PERC information to identify training needs and supplement future propane product development.
