This is a busy time for landscaping companies like yours. Pitmon is here to help with our commercial propane services.
Propane can help you get jobs done more efficiently and help your business grow. Converting your commercial mowers, vehicles, and generators to propane offers you opportunities to reduce expenses and generate more income for your landscaping business.
The Propane Education and Research Council (PERC) offers landscaping businesses like yours a reward of $1,000 for each purchase of a qualifying new propane commercial mower and $500 for each qualifying mower conversion to propane.
The state of Oklahoma also offers incentives and tax credits, as propane is an alternative fuel.
Speaking of tax credits, your business may be eligible for a federal tax credit for using propane equipment and vehicles.
There are other incentives for converting your landscaping equipment and vehicles to propane. For starters, propane usually costs less per gallon than gasoline. Your commercial mowers cost about 30% less per hour to operate than comparable mowers that run on gasoline. Clean-burning doesn’t create as much wear on the engines of your equipment and vehicles. They will need less maintenance and fewer repairs, meaning they’ll be out making money for your business rather than in the shop adding more expenses.
Propane makes managing your fuel costs easier, as you no longer have to deal with receipts from various filling stations. Loss of fuel to spills is dramatically reduced and fuel theft is virtually eliminated.
Propane has up to 60% fewer carbon emissions than other fuels. Unlike gasoline, does not harm air, water, or soil if it leaks. Your employees won’t be breathing in gasoline exhaust fumes. You’ll have a leg up on your competition with environmentally conscious clients.
Your employees no longer lose time having to fill an empty gasoline tank. Replacing an empty propane tank with a full one is a matter of moments and they’re back on the job. When your fleet vehicles use propane autogas, they are filled at your business and your employees don’t have to stop work to find a filling station. You can track your fuel usage more easily.
