About the Missouri Propane Education and Research Council

Our mission includes looking after propane consumers

Since its inception, MOPERC has helped thousands of Missouri homeowners replace water heaters, furnaces and other appliances with new, more energy-efficient propane models.

The Council also created a groundbreaking Lawn Equipment Assistance Fund (LEAF) that has helped dozens of Missouri lawn and landscape contractors acquire propane-powered lawn mowers, which has helped to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save on operational costs.

According to the U.S. Census, approximately 9% of Missouri’s households use propane for heating, hot water and cooking. Recognized for its environmental benefits, propane is also widely used in agriculture, manufacturing, lawn and landscape, tourism and transportation as a safe and versatile energy source.
