Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Programs for Farms

Are you a farm, looking to reduce your energy costs?  There are several programs and resources that can help farmers manage energy use and save money. The State of Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources is a great resource to help you know where to start, and provides links and resources on where to go from there.  Start with the RI Farm Energy Program for a lot of great information, or go right to the Solar Checklist for RI Farms from the Office of Energy Resources. You can even request a FREE Farm Energy Audit!  (Just identify yourself as a farmer in the question/comments box.)
