Organic Valley offers members energy loans

Organic Valley has created a $1 million renewable energy loan program for its members to invest in energy efficient technology.

CEO Bob Kirchoff says they have partnered with Clean Energy Credit Union and are offering low interest loans through the Powering the Good Loan Fund to accelerate farm improvements.

The program will fund solar, geothermal, and other efficiency updates throughout the farm which Kirchoff says reduces the carbon footprint of their members while lowering input costs overtime.

“It’s also cost effective, dairy farms consume a lot of energy,” he says.

Organic Valley-owned facilities have been powered by renewable energy since 2019.

Kirchoff announced the program during Monday’s Virtual Ag and Policy Summit hosted by AgriPulse.
