Incentives for Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency

Energy Audits and Renewable Energy Development Assistance for Wyoming
The partnership offers heavily discounted energy audits for rural small businesses, agricultural producers, non-profits, and divisions of local government. Through a USDA Rural Development pass-through grant, rural small businesses, farmers, and ranchers can also receive a renewable energy assessment.
Farmers and ranchers can use many of the opportunities detailed for commercial renewable energy and energy efficiency improvements, but the USDA offers additional resources at its “Energy Matrix.”
