Areas of Alabama will soon receive federal funding for energy-efficiency projects. Senator Richard Shelby announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture is granting $694,000 to fund the projects. The grant was made possible through the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Energy for America program.
“It is vital that we continue investing in Alabama’s rural areas to promote economic development and growth,” said Senator Shelby. “These grants will allow farmers, ranchers, and small businesses to save on production costs while improving efficiency. I am proud that the USDA has awarded this funding to our state, and I look forward to continuing to help Alabama’s farmers and rural communities.”
The grant will be used for projects in Baldwin, Calhoun, Conecuh, Cullman, Elmore, Escambia, and Marshall counties.
