The history of KanPERC – The Kansas Propane Education & Research Council

KanPERC–An industry commitment to the safety and education of Kansans.

Under the provisions of House Bill 2038 and the Kansas Propane Education & Research Act (KanPERA) of 2003, the propane industry in Kansas was authorized and directed to establish the Kansas Propane Education & Research Council (KanPERC) and to collect funds for the use of research, education, and safety education.

KanPERC is designed to enhance propane safety, education, and training for propane consumers and employees; to improve existing propane technology; to increase the efficiency of propane; and to develop other programs to educate the public about the safety, environmental aspects, and uses of propane.
