Agricultural Energy Audits Available to New York Farms through NYSERDA

New York farms can cut energy use and energy costs with the Agriculture Energy Audit Program

By Lisa Coven
Last spring, NYSERDA launched the Agriculture Energy Audit Program. The Program offers farms and on-farm producers no-cost energy audits.  No up-front costs are required form the farmer as NYSERDA pays the consultant directly.  Three levels of audits are offered.  The level II audit adheres to ANSI/ASABE S612 standards and can be submitted with EQIP applications or to other third parties for funding consideration.
Audits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The program runs through the end of the 2017 or until funds are expended.  For general information or to request flyers for your office call 800-732-1399 or email  To discuss the program further or contact the Program Manager, Lisa Coven, at extension 839 or
