Rebates for energy audits and efficiency upgrades can mean big savings for your agricultural operation.
The Value of Saving Energy on the Farm
We want to work with you to lower your agricultural energy costs. Through our Agriculture Energy Efficiency program, you can earn rebates for conducting an energy audit of your agricultural operation. You can also earn rebates for a wide variety of energy efficient upgrades. You'll save money, save energy and help us create a more sustainable future for Michigan.
Find Fertile Ground for Savings With an Energy Audit
The first step to effective energy savings is knowing how you're using energy now. That's why we offer you up to $500 in rebates per facility when you get an energy audit and create a plan to save. You can get a USDA Tier II Farm Energy Audit through Michigan State University's Michigan Farm Energy Audit Program.
The audit report will include recommendations for saving energy and earning additional rebates. This is the same audit you'll need if you want to apply to the USDA's Rural Energy for America Program (REAP), which includes up to $500,000 in grants and loan guarantees.
