USDA Offers $1B for Energy Efficiency, Renewable Projects

The U.S. Department of Agriculture wants small rural businesses — including manufacturers — to be aware of a federal grant program that pays as much as 50% of total costs for energy efficiency projects and zero-emissions renewable energy systems.

See this press release for information on the Rural Energy for American Program (REAP), which is accepting applications quarterly through Sept. 30, 2024. Plan to attend the OMA Energy Committee’s May 18 meeting for further discussion. 4/6/2023
