PLAINFIELD (AP) — Federal energy grants are going to help more than 31 farms and small businesses install solar panels and to convert heating systems from oil to wood or natural gas heat.
U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster are announcing the recipients of the Rural Energy for America Program grants on Friday afternoon. They'll be at Edgewater Farm in Plainfield.
The USDA is currently accepting energy efficiency and renewable energy grant and loan applications for the coming year.
