March 5 Application Deadline for Renewable Energy for Agriculture Program
By Media Office Staff
A March 5 application deadline is nearing for grant funds from the California Energy Commission’s Renewable Energy for Agriculture Program (REAP).
The program provides funds for projects in the agricultural sector that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and serve low-income and disadvantaged communities.
Agriculture, which is an important sector in California’s economy, is vulnerable to climate change and is a known greenhouse gas contributor.
Nearly $10 million in funds is available to install renewable energy technology resulting in a net greenhouse gas reduction benefit. The money can be used for equipment, installation costs from third-party licensed contractors, and site preparation.
Applications for REAP must be submitted to the Energy Commission by 5 p.m. on March 5. Additional information can be found here.
