The current economy and growing emphasis on emissions reductions makes this an ideal time to reach out to cost conscious landscape companies to educate them on the economic and environmental benefits of propane powered mowers. There are 150,000-200,000 new commercial mowers
sold each year and the OEMs are making unprecedented efforts to grow propane’s share to 15% by 2015. That could translate to over 150 million gallons of propane sales each year. This workshop is designed to help you identify the opportunities for propane mowers in your community, and provide selling tools to increase your summer gallons.

The current economy makes this an ideal time to reach out to cost-conscious builders and homeowners to educate them on the economic and environmental benefits of propane throughout the home. You’ll learn to target existing propane customers as well as new ones, while utilizing the marketing support and technical expertise of motivated OEM partners. Leverage current propane applications as a gateway to other indoor and outdoor propane applications.
In many agricultural businesses, propane irrigation engines are more economical and efficient than diesel-powered engines. They offer flexibility and ultimate mobility. The new generation of larger pumps are projected to use between 6,000-8,000 gallons of propane each year. That’s roughly equivalent to the propane usage of 3-6 homes.
Propane powered engines are less than 10% of the market today, suggesting tremendous untapped opportunity.
Learn how to make your agri-business customers, and your own businesses, more profitable and efficient by selling, servicing or simply fueling irrigation engines. Propane engines can be a gateway to other propane applications like insect control systems, propane flame or steam weed control, turf production, water heaters, standby generators, forklifts and commercial mowers.

What people are saying about the classes?
“This program targets markets that are counter-seasonal, which will level annual loads allowing us to better utilize our equipment and fuel infrastructure. It emphasizes advantages propane has in addition to economic benefits. The mower market is an emerging market for us and we’ll definitely be able to use this program in our company." — Joe Cordill, 2009 Chairman, National Propane Gas Association, Cordill Propane Service, Winnsboro, La.
“The program is an absolutely intriguing way for growing gallons and growing my business. It is exciting to be on the cutting edge of developing whole new markets." — Jeff Shaffer, President, Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association, and President, Shaffer's Bottled Gas, Hooversville, Pa.
While there is no charge for the class, a cancellation fee may be assessed for no-shows to cover the cost of the lunch and program materials.
