Funding Available for Small Business Investments in Renewable Energy

Hey small business owners, your creativity, passion, and drive helped you launch a business in your small town. Investing in renewable energy can help propel your business to the next level.

Installing wind or solar energy systems can cut down on your energy bill and attract new customers who appreciate a product produced with renewable energy. Grants for such projects are now available through the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP).

We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. Applications must be submitted to USDA Rural Development State Offices on: 

  • July 7, 2014 for renewable energy system and energy efficiency improvement grant applications and combination grant and guaranteed loan applications. 
  • On a continuous basis until July 31, 2014 for renewable energy system and energy efficiency improvement guaranteed loan only applications.

Your state office will have more information about the application process and eligibility. Find your state office here.
