The purpose of this website is to assist farmers and food processors with a path, information, tools and resources to assess the renewable energy opportunity in their business. We're striving to offer value from project start to finish by providing information and discussion platforms like this web-site and our blog.

We propose to include farmers, processors, advisors, lenders and others involved in the industry in our network to promote a common understanding of the energy business opportunity in agriculture.

A renewable energy business applies to some, energy conversation and efficiency applies to all. It is job one when considering renewable and alternative energy systems on farm and for food processing. The conservation business opportunity will be an area of focus for this site and our blog.
