Rebates and Incentives
Propane can pay back you and your clients.
Homeowners who are on a tight budget will want to hear about the federal, state, and local rebates and incentives that may be available to them for choosing propane. Construction professionals especially remodelers and HVAC contractors who understand what credits and rebates are available to customers in their area can help them get the most for their money. In many cases, a builder or homeowner can get multiple credits and rebates for a single project, making a propane upgrade even more budget smart, and easier for you to sell.
