RI Renewable Energy Development Assistance Project
RI RC&D is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a
USDA Rural Development Renewable Energy Development Assistance (REDA) Grant
which will provide evaluations for renewable energy projects to eligible Ag Producers
and/or Rural Small Businesses in Rhode Island.

The Rhode Island Renewable Energy Development Assistance Project
is a partnership between RI RC&D and EnSave, the recognized leader
in ag energy efficiency and renewable energy analysis, and will provide
technical assistance to help farms and rural small businesses determine
whether renewable energy is a good choice for their operation.

Eligible program participants will receive a NO COST renewable energy site assessment,
which will identify which renewable energy systems are appropriate to their sites
and evaluate the financial and technical feasibility of implementation of those systems
for their farm or rural small business.
