From the Propane Education & Research Council

For a limited time, farmers affected by the recent Midwest tornadoes can save up to $10,000 on propane-powered farm equipment.

RICHMOND, VA (May 2024) – The Propane Education & Research Council announces its Double Propane Farm Incentive Program will now include farmers who have experienced devastation from the recent tornado activity across the Midwest.

From now through December 31, 2024, impacted producers in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, or Ohio who apply for the Propane Farm Incentive Program can earn double the incentive amount for qualifying propane-powered equipment. Eligible equipment includes irrigation engines, building/water heating systems, power generators, and flame weeding systems.

“We recognize the immense challenges faced by those who have lost so much by this tornado outbreak,” said Michael Newland, director of agriculture business development at PERC. “Extending this program to help those affected is a small gesture we hope can make a difference in supporting those producers rebuilding their agriculture operations.”

With this program, applicants can receive twice the standard incentive amounts for $600 per liter of fuel displacement for propane-powered irrigation engines, up to $60/kW for generators, $3,000 for flame weeding systems, and $4,000 for agricultural heaters.

Applications will be verified by zip code and National Weather Service data. Apply now at Propane.com/FarmIncentive.
