The 2014 Farm Bill's Rural Energy for America Program: A WINDExchange Webinar

The 2014 Farm Bill's Rural Energy for America Program: A WINDExchange Webinar

Date: 5/21/2014

In February, Congress passed a new Farm Bill that includes an Energy Title. The Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) provides grants and loan guarantees to farmers, ranchers, and rural small businesses and rural electric cooperatives to install energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. DOE's WINDExchange initiative hosted a webinar providing an overview of the new Farm Bill and how rural stakeholders can submit successful applications for REAP funding. Environmental Law and Policy Center Senior Policy Advocate Andy Olsen described the funding allocated to REAP in 2014, eligible recipients and technologies, and application deadlines. Charles Newcomb, director of technical strategy for Endurance Wind Power, provided an industry perspective on the Farm Bill.
