The Propane Farm Incentive Program

You can save big on new propane-powered ag equipment, through the Propane Education & Research Council's Propane Farm Incentive Program.

And the incentives aren't the only ways you'll save. Propane-powered ag equipment runs more efficiently, lowers your fuel costs, cuts down on maintenance, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. All that combined makes a big impact on your operation's bottom line.

  • Qualifying Equipment

    The agricultural equipment listed below may be eligible for the program. Qualifying equipment and participating equipment dealers are subject to change at any point.

    Propane-Powered Industrial Engines
    New, EPA- and/or CARB-certified industrial engines used for agricultural purposes, typically in pumping applications, can qualify for incentives of $300/liter of displacement, up to $5,000 total.

    Propane-Powered Generators for Prime Power
    New, EPA- and/or CARB-certified generators used for prime power for agricultural purposes can qualify for incentives of $30/kW.

    Propane-Powered Crop Dryers
    New, high-efficiency upright tower grain dryers and high-efficiency horizontal profile grain dryers can qualify for a $3,000 incentive. The dryer must either be a new installation or a conversion from another power source.

    Propane-Powered Water Heating Systems
    New, high-efficiency water heating systems used in agricultural production operations are eligible for an incentive of $2,000. The system must either be installed in new construction or as a conversion from another power source.

    Propane-Powered Poultry, Swine, & Greenhouse Heating Systems
    New heating systems are eligible for an incentive of $0.10/square foot, up to $2,000 maximum per system, when installed as part of an entire system installation. The complete system must either be installed in new construction or as a conversion from another power source.

    Propane-Powered Flame Weed Control
    New, flame weed control systems are eligible for an incentive of $1,500.

  • How It Works

    Getting your incentive is easy, and your dealer will walk you through the steps, from the equipment purchase to the incentive application.

    Step 1: Work with your participating equipment dealer to purchase qualifying propane-powered equipment, then complete the PFIP registration packet.

    Step 2: Complete the online pre-season survey and mail your completed application materials to PERC. You may scan your application materials and email them to farmincentive@propane.com, fax them to 202-452-9054, or mail them in using the envelope in the packet. Don't forget to include your qualifying equipment's proof of purchase. In about 30 days, you'll receive your incentive payment.

    Step 3: Watch your inbox at the end of the season for a second survey. You must complete this post-season survey to be eligible for future incentives.

    Taking part in the Propane Farm Incentive Program is that simple. So think about all the ways propane could make your operation more efficient, and talk to your dealer today.
