The Propane Education & Research Council has added a new page to its website solely focused on helping municipalities and public organizations learn how propane maintenance equipment can improve their grounds maintenance operations. At, visitors will find resources explaining how propane mowers increase department productivity, lower fuel costs, and reduce emissions.

“Whether we’re talking about a large city, small rural township, or even a university, grounds maintenance departments are constantly asked to do more with less,” said Jeremy Wishart, PERC deputy director of business development. “Propane mowers help maintenance crews be more productive and efficient with their ever-shrinking budgets and time constraints.”

At the new online resource, content available for site visitors includes:

  • Video testimonials highlighting a county maintenance department (mowers) and public agency (police cruisers) already utilizing propane
  • Downloadable success stories detailing real-world experiences of propane mower operators at a university and municipality
  • Infographics showcasing the operational, financial, and environmental benefits of operating a commercial propane mower fleet
  • Contact information for maintenance equipment directors to learn more about getting started with propane.
