On-Farm Energy Initiative
The EQIP On-Farm Energy Initiative enables producers to identify ways to conserve energy on the farm through an Agricultural Energy Management Plan (AgEMP), also known as an on-farm energy audit; and by providing financial and technical assistance to help the producer implement various measures and practices recommended in an on-farm energy audit.
The On-Farm Energy Initiative will provide financial assistance to producers for an on-farm energy audit and for implementation of practices to improve and conserve energy.
