New PERC committee to further state association involvement

May 25, 2016 By    

A new Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) committee aims to bring state propane associations closer to the council, strengthening retailers’ involvement in industry programs.

PERC Chairman Tom Van Buren of Ferrell North America partnered with the National Propane Gas Association and the council to create the Industry Outreach Committee.

According to PERC, members of the newly formed committee will include state association executives and other industry leaders, councilors and council staff. Committee members will coordinate with states on rebate programs, consumer education, training, and market and industry outreach communication.

John Jessup, executive director of the North Carolina Propane Gas Association, says the committee will work to build a stronger connection between PERC programs and propane retailers.

“Taking the message down to the state level should ensure that more dealers are informed and involved with how their PERC funds are being spent and how to best leverage them for their business,” Jessup says in a PERC newsletter.
