Solar Agricultural Grants

USDA REAP & MDAR Ag-Energy Programs

PV Squared is proud to have provided solar to more than two dozen farms across our region. From small rooftop arrays to larger ground mounted systems, these solar projects help farms reduce their electricity costs and cut their carbon footprints.

In addition to state and federal solar incentive programs, farms and other businesses may qualify for solar agricultural grants from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR), which can further offset the costs of going solar.

Overview of USDA REAP:
Grants up to 25% of a solar project budget.
