Agriculture Track: Energy Efficiency and Cost Reduction Tech
Energy Saving Technology and Grant / Incentive Programs:
In this session, we will dive into Energy Efficiency (EE) equipment and design along with Economic Development Grants and utility incentives for high efficient equipment. A Q&A panel will follow the presentations.
Brian will discuss Economic Development funding opportunities for new and existing agribusiness and manufacturing facilities. Topics he will touch upon include agribusiness productivity, renewable energy installations, 3-phase electric line extensions, and more.
Nathan will discuss equipment that can make your facility more efficient such as LED lights, Variable Frequency Drives (VFD’s), process equipment and facility design.
John will discuss the incentive programs offered by National Grid, for the implementation of new technology.
Energy Efficiency Programs and Funding Opportunities:
There are “best practices” that can save you money and energy! A Q&A panel will follow the presentations
Gary will discuss the Rural Energy for America Program
Jessica will discuss NYSERDA’s Agriculture Energy Audit Program, Agriculture Energy-Related Best Practices and the NY-Sun program.
I will be discussing the Climate Resilient Farming Program and, hopefully, participants will walk away with the resources they need to know about participating in agricultural carbon sequestration and climate resiliency programs.
