Thinking about adding a manure digester to your farm? Would new HVAC units decrease your energy consumption? Would solar panels be a positive addition to your winery or business? If you answered YES to any of these quesitons, or now you’re thinking about another energy project or improvement to your farm OR rural business, then this lunch and learn workshop is for YOU!
Join us for lunch and a discussion about the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP), which provides financial assistance to agricultural producers and rural small businesses in rural America to purchase, install, and construct renewable energy systems; make energy efficiency improvements to non-residential buildings and facilities; use renewable technologies that reduce energy consumption; and participate in energy audits, renewable energy development assistance, and feasibility studies.
