WASHINGTON (Nov. 15, 2022) — A new incentive program is available for manufactured housing retailers from the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC). The new incentive program, the Manufactured Housing Retailer Incentive Program, encourages manufactured housing retailers to work with their clients to include clean, reliable, and efficient propane appliances in homes.
The Incentive Program offers up to $6,000 for each sales center location to install model homes containing propane appliances to help showcase the benefits of building with propane.
“To receive funding, we ask that retailers work directly with their propane supplier to apply for the program,” said Bryan Cordill, the director of residential and commercial business development at PERC.
The funds will cover any increase in the cost of the model home to incorporate propane, including the cost to convert appliances, install the propane system and perform safety checks.
The program applies to both HUD code and modular homes and requires that a gas range and a heating appliance (furnace and/or fireplace) are showcased in the model home. Both the propane supplier and manufactured housing retailer are required to report sales of propane homes from the retailer on a semiannual basis for three years.
“This incentive program provides a great opportunity for manufactured housing retailers to access funds necessary to showcase propane and its benefits,” Cordill said. “Adding propane performance to homes is an important step in further reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing efficiency and resiliency.”
