Interested in exploring renewable energy but unsure how to start? Have a project in mind but want a third-party opinion? If so, make sure you sign up for a FREE renewable energy assessment! The Tennessee Renewable Energy Assessment Program is offering a limited number of assessments to farmers of all types and businesses located in rural areas.
What is a renewable energy assessment?
It is a customized report that provides an unbiased, third-party evaluation of your renewable energy project to determine viability and ensure your project is properly sized. Not sure what type of system is best for you? We can evaluate a few options and present a comparison. Each assessment includes an economic evaluation to determine your return on investment.
Who is funding this?
The Southeast Tennessee RC&D, EnSave, and the Tennessee Poultry Association have been awarded a grant from USDA Rural Development to deliver these assessments statewide.
What can I do with my assessment?
The USDA Rural Energy for America Program offers grants up to 25% of your project cost and loan guarantees up to 75% of your project cost. You can use your energy assessment to apply for this funding.
Even if you don’t use the assessment to apply for funding, the report contains valuable information to help you make a business decision about renewable energy.
What are the next steps?
We have up to 30 FREE reports available, so don’t delay in applying as the program is first-come, first-served. Sign up now!
