Propane Education, Research, and Training

The Propane Education and Research Act of 1996 established the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC) to develop programs education and training programs for safe propane use. The propane industry funds and operates PERC, and PERC helps coordinate efforts to promote the use of propane as an alternative fuel. The Propane Education and Research Enhancement Act of 2014 expanded PERC's duties by tasking the council with developing training programs to reduce the effects of future propane price spikes for propane distributors and consumers. For more information, see the PERC website. (Reference Public Laws 113-269 and 104-284)
