Pennsylvania Agriculture Energy Efficiency Rebate Program Now Accepting Applications
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is now accepting applications for the Agriculture Energy Efficiency Rebate Program, which provides funding to agricultural producers to help them purchase energy-efficient equipment.
The program offers rebates for the purchase of LED lighting systems, efficient ventilation equipment, and efficient milk pumping and cooling equipment. Rebates are also available for installation costs.
The maximum rebate is $7,500 per technology category, up to 50% of the equipment purchase costs.
To be eligible for the program, applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Be a Pennsylvania agricultural producer
- Own or lease a farm in Pennsylvania
- Install the eligible equipment on a Pennsylvania farm
Applications are being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until December 31, 2023. Approved applicants will be issued a voucher, which they can then use to purchase the eligible equipment. Once the equipment is installed, the applicant can submit a payment request form with required documentation to the DEP to receive the rebate moneys.
