RHODE ISLAND AGRICULTURAL ENERGY PROGRAM
A Cooperative Agreement between Rhode Island Resource Conservation and Development Area Council, Inc., and the
Department of Environmental Management, Division of Agriculture and Office of Air Resources, and the RI Office of Energy Resources
The Rhode Island Agricultural Energy Program (RIAgEP) is a competitive grant program
that funds agricultural energy projects in an effort to improve energy efficiency and to facilitate the adoption of alternative clean energy technologies by Rhode Island farms in
order to reduce energy consumption thereby, decreasing the carbon footprint of the agricultural community and keep agriculture a viable and growing sector of Rhode Island's economy.
RI Ag Energy Program Grants will fund projects up to $20,000 that fall into either the
renewable energy category or the energy efficiency category. All farm related energy efficiency and renewable energy projects that meet the program requirements will be
considered, although priority will be given to proposals that focus on the technologies listed in the application.
