State reminds farmers of incentives up to 25% of cost for energy efficiency upgrades

First round deadline April 30

FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 30, 2012) – The Kentucky Agricultural Development Board (KADB), chaired by Governor Steve Beshear, reminds producers of the availability of $2 million in Kentucky Agricultural Development Funds (KADF) for on-farm energy efficiency or production projects.  Application and guidelines for the KADB’s new On-farm Energy Efficiency & Production Incentives Program are available online at ag-energy.ky.gov.

 

The program will provide 25 percent reimbursement of the actual cost of a qualified energy saving item, up to $10,000.  Permissible items include, but are not limited to, energy audits, energy efficient farm building components, on-farm energy upgrades and on-farm energy efficiency training.  Only expenditures made after March 11, 2011 will be eligible for reimbursement. All applications will be reviewed on a quarterly basis and scored by a committee comprised of representatives from GOAP, the Kentucky Agricultural Development Board, the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture and USDA Rural Development.  The first quarterly deadline is April 30, 2012.
