Energy Audits and Renewable Energy Development Assistance

USDA is offering funds through their Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) to provide support for energy audits and renewable energy development assistance that will allow agriculture producers and rural small businesses to become more energy efficient and use renewable technologies. For all projects, the proposed system must be located in a rural area, must be technically feasible, and must be owned by the applicant.

Grants are awarded on a competitive basis and can be up $100,000. Recipients of an energy audit are required to pay at least 25% of the cost of the audit. The application deadline is June 30, 2011 and more information regarding this program can be found Here.

  1. At Prosperity Ag & Energy Resources we are wrapping up submission for about 50 REAP grant applications in Indiana. We are accepting our last clients and keeping busy working on these applications until the June 15th deadline for Construction applications. We are also accepting applications for the other REAP programs, including Feasibility Studies, also due June 30th.
