Thu, 04/13/2017 - 11:56am -- Jean Davis

New York farms can cut energy use and energy costs with the Agriculture Energy Audit Program.

Last spring, NYSERDA launched the Agriculture Energy Audit Program . The Program offers farms and on-farm producers no-cost energy audits.  No up-front costs are required form the farmer as NYSERDA pays the consultant directly.  Three levels of audits are offered.  The level II audit adheres to ANSI/ASABE S612 standards and can be submitted with EQIP applications or to other third parties for funding consideration. 

Audits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The program runs through the end of the 2017 or until funds are expended.  For general information or to request flyers for your office call 800-732-1399 or email aeep [at]  To discuss the program further or contact the Program Manager, Lisa Coven, at extension 839 or lisac [at]   

Applications available at

Farms can bring the completed Audit to NRCS for funding opportunities.
