REAP Energy Workshops Scheduled in February/March

Mark Williams
Release Date
Jan 30, 2015

USDA Rural Development will be holding 14 energy grant workshops across rural Nevada beginning in late February. At the workshops, Energy Coordinator Mark Williams will provide a brief overview of the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP),  a USDA grant and loan program that can pay up to 25% of the project costs to build a renewable energy system or improve energy efficiency. Small rural businesses, farmers and ranchers are eligible to apply.

 The systems the grant can fund are either for renewable energy systems, like solar, hydro and wind power, or for systems that increase energy efficiency—such as variable speed drives for well pumps or new energy efficient lighting, heating or air conditioning systems. In addition, USDA RD offers a guaranteed loan for energy efficiency improvement or renewable energy projects. Rural business owners who want to upgrade their HVAC systems, for example, may be able to save up to 25% of the project costs by pursuing a grant/loan combination. For more information contact Mark Williams at (775) 887-1222 Ext. 116.
