Symbols for energy conservation.Conserving energy on your farm can save you money and reduce your carbon footprint. One of the key issues in conserving energy is figuring out where you can save energy and determining what it will cost vs. the benefit of investing in energy efficiency upgrades.

The Farm Energy Audit Program was designed to help agricultural producers to evaluate current practices on thier farm and identify cost effective alternatives that will save them money in the long run. It will also help identify potential cost share and grant programs to assist in making the conversions.
