Updates to the Growing Forward 2 On-Farm Solar Program

Applications are now being accepted for projects that were begun after April 15, 2017. This is a change from the previous policy where all projects had to be started after the application had been filled out. This will help anyone who has already started or completed a project, as well as those who want to start right away, before submitting an application, so as to be done their project before the Growing Forward 2 deadline of March 31, 2018.
 
Also a reminder that the program is open to anyone who has an electrical distribution rate class as farm, or agriculture related in any way. This means that even retired farmers, or those who live on acreages may be eligible to apply. They do not need to be active producers. They just need to find out what their distribution rate class is from their retailer.
 
If you know of anyone who will be benefited by this, let them know. If you have any other questions, I am happy to help.
 
Regards,
