Propane Education & Research Council

PERC is authorized to carry out programs, projects, and activities in three key areas:

Safety
Nothing is more important to PERC than the safety of everyone who works with, sells, buys, or depends on propane. Through communications and outreach to consumer safety organizations, trade groups, emergency responders, and the public, PERC increases awareness of safe practices in the handling and use of propane and propane-fueled appliances.

Training
Because a well-trained propane workforce is essential to protecting the health and well-being of propane consumers and the general public, PERC leads the development and updating of the propane industry’s most relied upon employee training and certification programs and courseware.

Research and Development
By supporting research, development, and demonstration of innovative propane-fueled products and applications, PERC promotes the commercialization of technologies that expand the utility, efficiency, environmental performance, and safety of propane for users in residential, commercial, engine fuel, and agricultural markets.

PERC’s operations and activities are funded by an assessment levied on each gallon of propane gas at the point it is odorized or imported into the United States. The assessment, authorized under PERA, is now four-tenths of a cent per gallon.

PERC promotes the safe, efficient use of odorized propane as a preferred energy resource through research and development, training, and safety programs.

The mission of the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) is to promote the safe and efficient use of odorized propane gas. It accomplishes this through wide-ranging programs that support safety, training, and the development and commercialization of promising propane technologies.

PERC was authorized by the U.S. Congress with passage of the Propane Education and Research Act (PERA), Public Law 104-284, signed into law on October 11, 1996. In a referendum soon afterward, propane producers and marketers overwhelmingly approved its formation.

The Council is a 21-member board appointed by the National Propane Gas Association and the Gas Processors Association, both of which appoint nine Council members and cooperate in the appointment of three public members.
