REAP grants awarded to 54 Minnesota farmers

Minnesota’s U.S. Senators are touting USDA grants they say will help reduce energy costs for farmers.

Democrats Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith issued a joint release announcing more than 50 state projects will receive support through the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP).

Klobuchar says REAP grants help Minnesotans develop renewable energy projects to increase the productivity and efficiency of their farms and operations.

Smith says the Minnesota ag community needs help during these tough economic times, and helping farmers cut energy costs is one of the steps that should be taken.

Minnesota recipients can use REAP grants to install renewable energy systems like biofuels, or power generation from wind, solar or biomass.
