Family Farms Program

Rebates & Savings


The Family Farms Program provides rebates and technical assistance to help residentially metered farms replace aging, inefficient equipment and systems with new, energy-efficient technologies.

Prescriptive Rebate Offering

Provides a simple method to make efficient choices by offering predetermined rebates for a wide selection of common energy-efficient lighting measures, such as LED bulbs.

Custom Rebate Offering

Provides rebates for more complex and site-specific opportunities for energy-efficient technologies or multi-measure projects that are not included in the prescriptive offerings. Typical custom measures include:

  • Exhaust fans
  • Variable frequency drives
