About The Event
Are you interested in learning if Solar or Wind Energy Installations are right for your farm or rural business?
Local non-profit North Jersey RC&D has received funding from USDA to provide farms and rural businesses* in northern New Jersey a renewable energy assessment. The program uses only your utility bills, satellite imagery, and weather data (no site visit) to create a renewable energy assessment.
Our program partner, EnSave, will work with farmers and rural businesses to answer any technical questions, help determine the appropriate renewable energy project, and ultimately develop a renewable energy assessment report so that applicants can move forward with confidence. EnSave is an independent third-party qualified consultant with over 30 years of serving agriculture and rural communities with their energy needs.
Join us for our Friday Lunch & Learn Series to learn about new funding opportunities and deadlines through REAP and find out if REAP is right for you. This series will be held live via Zoom and recorded.
