REAPing the Benefits of Solar
Share this post
ReVision Energy is grateful to have worked with a number of great local Maine and New Hampshire businesses over the year in exploring their solar energy options and getting creative about how to make the project possible. A little-known but incredibly helpful program is the USDA REAP Grant, created to help rural businesses gain access to the benefits of clean energy, that will fund up to 25% of a project’s cost.
In 2016, a full 7 (!) awardees will be getting solar from ReVision Energy. The fact that so many of the grants awarded this current session were awarded for solar, speaks to solar’s cost-effectiveness and compatibility for rural Maine and rural New Hampshire.
The full list of awardees is available at: http://www.rd.usda.gov/newsroom/news-release/usda-rural-development-under-secretary-lisa-mensah-announces-13-rural-energy-0
ReVision Energy is very happy to talk to interested businesses – contact us to learn whether your solar project might qualify for a REAP grant and how to get started.
Solar Projects – Built and Beautiful!
As an update to this post, a few of the projects mentioned in this article are now alive and generated kilowatt-hours. (Just a couple of the 7 mentioned, we’ll add more as they get built!)
