The Driftless Clean Energy Grant grant provides cost-shares of up to $25,000 to install energy-efficient equipment or a solar-electric system on your farm.
This grant is a partnership between CROPP and Valley Stewardship Network (VSN). Administration is
conducted by CROPP, and VSN distributes the funding to the farmers.
Farms in the following Wisconsin counties are eligible: Vernon, La Crosse, Monroe, Richland, and Crawford.
For energy efficiency equipment, your project must be installed between March 1, 2022, and August 1,
2023. You can apply for the grant to reserve funds for future energy efficiency equipment that will be
installed during the appropriate timeframe or apply for the grant to reimburse the cost of equipment that
was already installed within that period. (Note: there is no guarantee of the availability of funds if you do
not reserve funds before installation).
For on-farm solar, your project must be installed between March 1, 2022, and August 1, 2023. You must
apply for the grant to reserve funds for the solar-electric system prior to installation. You cannot apply for
this grant to reimburse a solar-electric system that has already been installed.
