Farmers and consumers working together for sustainability and better food

We are New York’s leading non‐profit organization providing programs and services to promote sustainable, local organic food and farming. Our coalition of farmers, gardeners, consumers and businesses join together to create a food system that’s ecologically sound and economically viable. Through education, certification, advocacy and other efforts, we promote organic food production, local marketing, and land stewardship.

From EnSave, Inc. Program Manager Lisa Coven:

The Agriculture Energy Audit Program provides farms and on-farm producers with no-cost energy audits that include recommendations to improve energy efficiency. The program also helps participants access funding support to implement energy efficiency measures. This first-come, first-served program is open through the end of 2017, or until program funds expire.

Typical systems evaluated include lighting, motors, pumps, dairy milking equipment, ventilation, and refrigeration. In general, a farm can expect an energy audit to identify savings representing between 10% and 35% of their total energy use. The program is open to all types of farms and on-farm producers, including but not limited to: dairies, orchards, greenhouses, vegetables, vineyards, grain dryers, maple and poultry/egg. Farms must be customers of a New York State investor-owned utility and contribute to the System Benefits Charge (SBC).

EnSave is implementing the audit program for NYSERDA, and working with farms to improve energy efficiency and save money.
