Alternative fuels on-road consumer rebates. This project will now have several objectives in 2020: continue to work with Clean Fuels Michigan; continue to promote autogas vehicle incentives to end users; promote autogas with other associations and industries. The project includes the continued public relations component to help promote the autogas vehicle incentives and assistance in aligning MPGA/Michigan PERC with the potential for work with the Volkswagen Settlement. MIPERC will offer rebates to consumers up to $4000 for purchase of autogas vehicles. Consumer and industry rebates will be administered on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Consumer and industry education. MIPERC will continue its social media and eJournal education forums for consumer and industry personnel education, respectively. Additionally, Safe Handling of Propane (SHOP) will continue to coordinate the seasonal outreach education, like grill safety, along with continued outreach for low income consumer education and food safety messaging.

Construction professional education. MIPERC will continue to expand its initiatives to bring propane awareness and education resources to HVAC professionals, home builders, and plumbers utilizing PERC construction education resources. New for 2022, the propane industry in Michigan is thrilled to provide an incentive to licensed builders, plumbers, electricians, HVAC professionals, etc. which are available when replacing an electric water heater with an energy efficient propane water heater in an existing home or new build.
