Wy'East's Energy Efficiency Program
Wy'East specializes in Agricultural Energy Efficiency.
Our Energy Efficiency Program helps producers save water, energy, and maybe most importantly - money. To help producers realize those savings, we assist in getting grants and incentives to offset the cost of energy-efficiency upgrades.
Energy efficiency is the least expensive source of new energy in the agricultural sector. Even operations considering renewable energy systems (such as solar power) should implement energy efficiency measures first to prevent the over-design of those systems.
The Agricultural Energy Efficiency Program is funded by the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA.) The program is administered by nonprofit RC&D Councils (RC&Ds) located in BPA's service area. Wy'East staff works with agricultural producers and their electric cooperatives to identify, develop and get funding for agricultural energy efficiency measures. Wy'East acts as the producer's advocate in saving water, energy, and money.
The benefits for agricultural producers can include:
Establish eligibility for funding programs.
Gather field data.
Advise growers about grants and incentives.
Measure and verify results.
