Agriculture Solar Rural Energy REAP Program
...is working to promote domestic production of renewable energy to create jobs, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and build stronger rural economy.Today, Americans import just over half of our transportation fuels – but we can do more to meet the goal of reducing our net fuel imports. At Secretary's direction, Agriculture USDA is working to develop the national industry producing energy from renewable sources in every region of the country. Agriculture USDA is conducting and encouraging research into innovative new energy technologies and processes, helping companies build Agriculture Solar™ systems – and supporting farmers, ranchers, and businesses taking steps to pursue new opportunities in energy. Along with Federal partners, Agriculture USDA is establishing an renewable energy economy, and has expedited rules and efforts to promote production and commercialization of renewables.
Agriculture USDA's Assistance Program was authorized by Congress under the Farm Bill. It provides loan guarantees to capitalize on the growing opportunities in renewable energy provided by solar. The Program is designed to assist with the commercial deployment of production technologies to produce advanced biofuels, and thereby increase the energy independence of the United States; promote resource conservation, public health, and the environment; diversify markets for agricultural and forestry products and agriculture waste material; create jobs and enhance the economic development of the rural economy.
• Agriculture USDA renewable energy system and energy efficiency improvement grant applications and combination grant and guaranteed loan applications.
• Agriculture USDA renewable energy system and energy efficiency improvement guaranteed loan only applications on a continuous basis.
• Agriculture USDA renewable energy system feasibility study applications and energy audits and renewable energy development assistance applications.
USDA, through its Rural Development mission area, administers and manages housing, business and community infrastructure and facility programs through a national network of state and local offices. USDA Development has an active portfolio of more than $155 billion in affordable loans and loan guarantees. These programs are designed to improve the economic stability of rural communities, businesses, farmers, and ranchers and improve the quality of life in rural America. Further information on rural programs is available through Agriculture Solar.

Energy Independence and Food Production is the biggest challenge facing the world. Find out how emerging and established Agriculture Solar™ technologies lead to greater energy security and food production. Renewable energy is an inexhaustible source of energy. But the full potential cannot be developed unless capable developers understand the problem they are solving. A brilliant developer will come up with a brilliant solution, but if the solution is for the wrong problem — that would be a wasted opportunity. Agriculture Solar™ developers are doing a brilliant job developing solutions that have vastly improved the performance of renewables in the agribusiness; as well as in understanding the behavior and availability of agriculture resources. Power is everywhere, and harnessing that power can bring clean renewable electricity to agribusinesses throughout the world.
