Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Audits

REAP Energy Audit Program


The Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) offered through the USDA provides assistance to agricultural producers and small, rural businesses for purchasing and implementing energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy systems.  Funding is available to supplement the initial purchase of a system and to cover part of the energy audit.  For more information, please review the links below or contact a UK specialist here.
