Are you one of the many Western Growers members who took advantage last year of drought assistance funding through the State Water Efficiency Program (SWEEP)? Maybe you meant to but never got around to it? Either way, the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has opened a new round of funding and is now accepting applications for competitive grants to implement irrigation systems that reduce greenhouse gases and save water on California agricultural operations.
Is your business generating electricity through solar or other renewable energy generation systems? If so, then understanding how to fully benefit from the Net Energy Metering Aggregation (NEMA) program may be of great value to your operation.
Want to make informed decisions about how renewable energy can help your farming or processing operation? The Agricultural Energy Consumers Association (AECA) and the Western Agricultural Processors Association (WAPA) are sponsoring a one-day conference on November 12 in Fresno to help you do just that. The conference is designed to assist farmers and agriculture processors better understand the renewable energy options and benefits available to them.
