Electric Co-op Action Page

Farmers and rural businesses have a new opportunity to save money on energy costs and create backup systems to protect their energy supply during severe storms, thanks to new funding in the Inflation Reduction Act. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Renewable Energy for America Program (REAP) has enabled thousands of farms and rural businesses to reduce energy costs by providing grants and loans to buy more energy efficient equipment, insulate buildings, and generate electricity with solar power and other renewable technologies.
