Whether you are planning for the 2017 growing season, looking to improve your business operations or hoping to find more affordable energy solutions for your home, the clock is ticking. Propane tax and rebate incentives are set to expire at the end of 2016.
The propane industry offers a variety of incentives for business, agricultural and residential use that will expire on December 31, 2016 or in the first few months of 2017. Propane is one of the country’s most popular alternative energy sources because it offers benefits over traditional power sources, including:
- Historically lower prices than natural gas or electric options
- Increased reliability — no grid-related power outages
- Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
