As energy and fuel costs rise, growers and producers have both environmental and business motives for making their operations cleaner, more profitable and more efficient. The USDA reports that 15% of agricultural production costs are energy related and these costs are becoming an increasing portion of farm budgets.
The Tanner Creek Energy team of energy management specialists can assess a farm’s primary energy uses and develop a prioritized energy management plan that includes tools and technologies to help agricultural producers transition to energy-efficient operations. We will help identify the most cost-effective clean energy practices that will:
- Lower fuel and energy costs
- Make farm buildings more efficient
- Lower processing costs and increase production efficiency through the upgrade and maintenance of equipment
- Use natural, renewable resources to lower input costs
- Leverage renewable resources to generate energy
There are an increasing variety of programs, incentives and technologies available to lower the energy usage of farm operations. Tanner Creek is well-versed in identifying which of these offer the highest return depending on the type, size and scale of your operation. We will facilitate incentive program compliance to help you maximize your return and shorten your payback period. In addition to energy efficiency and conservation, we can help identify optimal renewable energy sources for your farm’s operations.
