NYSERDA offers free energy audits to identify energy efficiency measures for eligible farms and on-farm producers, including but not limited to: dairies, orchards, greenhouses, vegetables, vineyards, grain dryers, and poultry/egg. In addition, greenhouse facilities can receive a free benchmarking report that describes their energy use intensity and benchmarks their facility against an anonymous aggregate of peer facilities. Farms must be customers of a New York State investor-owned utility and contribute to the System Benefits Charge (SBC). Please check your current electricity bills.
Farms can request an energy audit or a greenhouse benchmark report through the Agriculture Energy Audit Program. NYSERDA will assign a Flexible Technical Assistance (FlexTech) Consultant to perform an energy audit or a benchmark report. Send an email to [email protected] for more information.
