Reducing Farm Energy Costs Goal of MAESTRO Program
Called MAESTRO, or the Missouri Agricultural Energy Saving Team–A Revolutionary Opportunity, the program aims to serve farms that are too small to require a confined animal feeding operation permit.
Farmers can receive a comprehensive energy audit of both their farms and homes. Results of the audits will include detailed recommendations on equipment and other improvements to increase energy efficiency.
Costs of the audits are reimbursed by the grant after implementation of sufficient efficiency measures.
For more information or an initial assessment to determine if your farm is eligible and an energy audit is appropriate, contact Patrick Davis at the MU Extension Center in Neosho, (417) 455-9500 or online at www.moagenergysavings.org. April 8 MAESTRO press release.
