MA Farm Energy Program – Transition

MA Farm Energy Program – Transition

The Massachusetts Farm Energy Program was launched by Berkshire-Pioneer Resource Conservation & Development (BPRC&D) in 2007 and operated for more than six years with funding and program support from several partners. As of March 2014, BPRC&D is stepping down and handing over the reins to the Center for EcoTechnology (CET) to lead the Massachusetts Farm Energy Program.

The Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources has awarded CET grant funding to administer the MA Farm Energy Program (MFEP). Through one-on-one consultations, workshops, energy audits, financial incentives, and collaboration with other agencies CET will work closely with farms to identify and help leverage funding for energy efficient and renewable energy improvements.

For more than 35 years, the Center for EcoTechnology has helped people and businesses–including farms–in Massachusetts save energy and reduce waste. Our 75 staff operate out of offices in Pittsfield and Northampton, and from EcoBuilding Bargains Springfield and field staff are located throughout Massachusetts.

CET thanks BPRC&D for their ongoing support, and specifically Jess Cook and Layla Hazen for their dedication and hard work in helping farms across the state these past several years. We look forward to working with partners and funding agencies to provide information and resources for farms across the state.
