    USDA Rural Energy for America Program (REAP)

    Rural Energy For America Program

    Did you know that the USDA has a program that can provide Grant funding to small businesses for a Solar Energy System? 


    The program -- Rural Energy for America Program – provides grant funding and guaranteed loan financing to small businesses for renewable energy systems or to make energy efficiency improvements. Agricultural small businesses can also apply for new energy-efficient equipment and new system loans for agricultural production and processing. 


    Combined with the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act Federal Tax Credit, up to 70% of your system cost can be paid by others. This makes Solar Power an even wiser investment. Using these programs, you may be able to reduce your payback to as little as 3 years.

    Who is Eligible for the REAP Program?

    Small businesses in eligible rural areas can apply for this program. All of SoL Energy’s service area are eligible areas for this program.
