Farm Energy Efficiency Program (FEEP)

The Office of Energy Resources (OER), in partnership with National Grid, administer the Farm Energy Efficiency Program (FEEP). Participants receive a no-cost, no-obligation energy assessment. During which, an energy specialist will visit the farm, examine certain farming equipment, and provide a written list of recommended energy efficiency improvements along with available incentives.

This Program is supported by the systems benefit charge on ratepayer bills and Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) funds.

No-Cost Energy Assessment

A free, no-obligation energy assessment will look at your greenhouses, ventilation, lighting, heating and cooling systems, pumps and motors, refrigeration, air sealing, insulation, and more. Call 1-800-332-3333 to get started – be sure to identify yourself as a farmer.

Incentives for Energy-Saving Measures

Qualifying measures are tailored for agriculture-specific businesses. Incentives and interest-free financing are available for electric measures. Oil and propane measures are eligible for incentives of up to 75% of installed costs.

This program may be combined with other energy efficiency incentives, grants, and financing programs. Click here for more information on farm energy resources.
