USDA Invests $8.7 Million in Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency in Rural Oregon

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development is investing $8.7 million to help 75 agricultural producers and small businesses in rural Oregon lower their energy costs through renewable energy adoption and energy efficiency improvements, announced State Director John Huffman today.

"This is an especially difficult time for small business owners, farmers, and ranchers," said Huffman. "By financing renewable energy systems and energy efficiency improvements, we're helping these rural businesses reduce their utility expenses and improve their bottom line."
