Agriculture Energy Efficiency Rebate Program

Written on . Posted in .
Pennsylvania farms and agricultural operations may be eligible to receive rebates for energy efficiency projects through a new program offered by Pennsylvania DEP. Applications are being accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis as long as funding is available through March 31, 2022. Implementing energy efficiency measures is typically one of the easiest ways for any small business, farm, or agricultural operation to reduce operational costs, save money, reduce waste, and do good for the environment. Eligible projects for these rebates include LED lighting and variable frequency drives for milk vacuum pumps and ventilation fans. Information on eligibility and rebate amounts can be found here. If you are a Pennsylvania small business or agricultural operation and need further assistance about this rebate program, please feel free to contact EMAP by emailing us at questions@askemap.org or call our toll-free environmental hotline at (877) ASK-EMAP.
