FRANKFORT, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky Agricultural Development Board (KADB), chaired by Governor Steve Beshear, reminds producers of the availability of $1.75 million for on-farm energy efficiency or production projects.
Application and guidelines for the KADB's 2013 On-farm Energy Efficiency & Production Incentives Program are available online at http://ag-energy.ky.gov. The program will provide 50 percent reimbursement of the actual cost of a qualified energy project, up to $15,000.
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 Jan. 1, 2013 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.
