The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) reopened online applications for its Propane Mower Incentive Program.

The incentive helps landscape contractors save on the upfront cost of a new propane mower, according to PERC. With the program, landscape contractors, facilities managers, municipal fleet directors and homeowners can apply for incentives of $1,000 for the purchase of a new propane mower or $500 to convert an existing machine with a qualified conversion kit.

“We intend to keep the program open through the buying season and will re-evaluate in the spring based on program activity and the pace of incoming applications,”┬ásays Jeremy Wishart, deputy director of business development at PERC.

According to PERC, the Propane Mower Incentive Program launched in 2012, and it has helped commercial propane mower operators save up to $1,000 on the purchase of a new unit. Throughout the life of the program, more than 4,000 gasoline mowers have been switched to propane mowers across 43 states. Applications for more than 600 mower purchases and conversions were received during the last iteration of the program, which ran from October 2015 to April 2016, PERC adds.

Propane equipment dealers interested in offering incentive program materials to customers can learn more about the program online. Applications for the program are also available online.
