Agriculture Energy Efficiency Program
NYSERDA offers assistance to identify and implement electric and natural gas energy efficiency measures for eligible farms and on-farm producers, including but not limited to: orchards, greenhouses, vegetables, vineyards, grain dryers, and poultry/egg. Farms must be a customer of a New York State investor-owned utility and contribute to the System Benefits Charge (SBC). Please check your farm’s current utility bills.
Through the Agriculture Energy Efficiency Program you can request an energy audit, project implementation services, or both. NYSERDA will assign a FlexTech Consultant to perform an energy audit at no cost for audits up to $2,500. For more complex energy audits, exceeding $2,500, cost-sharing by the applicant will be required.
Project Implementation Incentives
NYSERDA provides up to 75% of eligible product costs and capped at $250,000. The farm must contribute at least 25% cash cost-sharing toward the project.
- Projects with simple payback of less than 6 months
- Projects completed prior to application
