Private fleets and public refueling stations have until June 30 to apply for the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) Quick-Connect Nozzle Incentive Program, which provides $100 per tank-side connector and $1,000 per hose-end connector.

“We’ve seen a positive response from owners and operators since we expanded the program to include fleets in March,” said Greg Kerr, director of research and development for PERC. “Fleets have used the nozzle incentive to improve their refueling experience while significantly reducing emissions compared to older nozzles.”

Unlike older nozzle designs, quick-connect nozzles can be operated with one hand and may not require the user to wear protective eyewear or gloves, making the experience much like a conventional fuel nozzle.
