Financial assistance is available to inventory and analyze farm systems that use energy and identify opportunities to improve efficiency.  Once this is complete, eligible producers can apply for EQIP assistance for the purchase, installation, or retrofit of certain buildings or equipment to improve energy efficiency. EQIP offers energy efficiency and nutrient management assistance as well. Energy-saving improvements can reduce energy costs and improve efficiency.
