On-Farm Energy Initiative

The EQIP On-Farm Energy Initiative enables the producer to identify ways to conserve energy on the farm through an Agricultural Energy Management Plan, also known as an on-farm energy audit. NRCS also provides financial and technical assistance to help the producer implement various measures and practices recommended in these on-farm energy audits.

Who is Eligible?

Eligible applicants include individuals, legal entities, Indian Tribes, or joint operations engaged in agricultural production. Producers who grow agricultural commodities on eligible land and have resource concerns which may be addressed by energy conservation may participate in EQIP’s On-Farm Energy Initiative.

Detailed information on EQIP eligibility is available on the EQIP homepage.
