Agriculture

Owners of farms and other agricultural businesses can upgrade their equipment for greater energy efficiency and get paid for it thanks to our Agriculture Incentive Program. The Program offers financial incentives and helps customers of FirstEnergy's Pennsylvania utilities install better, newer, more energy-efficient equipment related to milking, cooling, ventilation and water systems on farms.

Next, consider upgrading older, less efficient equipment and installing controls on lighting and building equipment. Many of these upgrades are eligible for incentives that can reduce capital costs and shorten the payback period, such as:

Optimize Ventilation Systems

• Install energy efficient high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) fans to remove moisture and odor while controlling temperatures for improved animal health
