The Agricultural Energy Management Plan is an analysis of current
farm infrastructure and management with recommendations about how to reduce
energy consumption on the farm.
Alabama NRCS is offering a special initiative for
development of Agricultural Energy Management Plans in select counties as part
of the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). These counties
include Coffee, Dale, DeKalb, Colbert, Cullman, and Franklin. NRCS Field Offices in
these counties are now
accepting applications from interested landowners and operators for conservation
planning activities associated with constructing Agricultural Energy Management Plans.

service providers from the Technical Service
