Pennsylvania Agriculture Energy Efficiency Rebate Program

[53 Pa.B. 5345]
[Saturday, August 26, 2023]

 The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) announces the availability of a rebate program for agriculture energy efficiency projects to Commonwealth agriculture producers under the Pennsylvania Agriculture Energy Efficiency Rebate Program (Program). The Program provides rebates to assist agricultural producers with the purchase of LED lighting systems, efficient ventilation equipment, and efficient milk pumping and cooling equipment for their farming operations.

 To qualify for the rebate, the applicant must meet the definition of a normal agricultural operation under the act of June 10, 1982 (P.L. 454, No. 133), known as the Pennsylvania Right to Farm Law and the application must be submitted to the Department prior to the installation of the project. Equipment purchase costs after July 1, 2023, are eligible. The rebate will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis in the order in which they are received, until no later than December 31, 2023. Approved applicants will be issued a voucher, then install eligible equipment and submit a payment request form with required documentation to the Department to receive rebate moneys.

 The following rebates are offered:

 • $7,500 rebate for LED lighting systems (up to 50% of equipment purchase costs).

 • $7,500 rebate for efficient ventilation (up to 50% of equipment purchase costs).

 • $7,500 rebate for dairy and refrigeration or cooling equipment (up to 50% of equipment purchase costs).

 • $7,500 for variable frequency drives (up to 50% of equipment purchase costs).

 • Installation costs of up to $2,000 may be included for each technology category.

 Applicants may apply under each category, but no more than a total of $7,500 in rebates will be issued to any one applicant.

 Information on how to apply will be available on the Department's agriculture energy webpage at gov/agricultureenergy.

 Questions concerning the rebate program can be directed to Michelle Ferguson at or (570) 327-3783.
