The PCRP logo.WASHINGTON (Feb. 20, 2024) — Residential builders can apply now for the 2024 Propane Construction Research Program. Supported by the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), the program amplifies efforts to install propane appliances in new homes and remodels to reduce carbon emissions in the U.S.

As Prime Minister Justin Trudeau looks to roll out support for energy costs to rural Canada, the government relief currently does not include support for Canadians who rely on propane for heating. The Canadian Propane Association (CPA) has called on the prime minister to also provide relief for propane users.

NPGA has established a legal action fund to proactively combat recent government restrictions on gas equipment. Ongoing legal battles that have put a strain on the propane industry led the NPGA Executive Committee to devote significant, long-term resources to advocating for the industry's interests.
