Energy Conservation: Impact on the Bottom Line
MSU Extension hosts an annual four-phase program designed to help people become certified farm energy auditors. Individuals can become certified to complete dairy, greenhouse, irrigation, grain dryer, poultry, swine and rural business audits. On average, dairy farms that have implemented the energy conservation practices recommended in energy audits have seen 46-percent reductions in their energy costs.
