The United States Department of Agriculture routinely sets aside funds to assist small businesses in eligible rural areas with investment in renewable energy systems and energy efficiency improvements. 

Often grants are available for up to 25% of project costs with a  $500 thousand limit for renewable energy improvements and a $250 thousand limit for energy efficiency improvements. Loan guarantees are often available for up to 75% of project costs with a $25 million limit.

For additional project requirements and up to date information about the provision, visit the USDA's Rural Development website.

Our team of licensed Professional Engineers can evaluate your project for compliance with the energy savings and/or renewable energy provisions of the USDA REAP program.
