This course will compare Propane Energy Pod homes to standard electric energy choices and describe which energy packages make your homes easier to sell.

Win a Portable Propane Generator or
Outdoor Gas Grill
Cut through the hassle of bringing portable power to the jobsite. PERC will be giving away a Generac LP3250 generator on each day of IBS, so stop by the PERC booth for a chance to win. The LP3250 is truly portable: Whereas previous portable propane generators required the propane tank to be separately carried, the LP3250 incorporates a tank holder into the frame itself, so the propane tank sits securely out of the way. The unit produces 3,250 watts and operates for 9 hours on a 20-pound propane tank.
On the third day of the show, booth visitors will also have a chance to win a Fire Magic Aurora A540 gas grill. With a cooking area that measures 30" by 18", flush-mounted side burner, and solid stainless steel unibody construction, the Fire Magic is designed to be the centerpiece of a home's outdoor entertaining area. Fill out an entry form at the booth to enter the sweepstakes. One entry per person, please. Official rules are available on the AGA website.
