Grassroots

Farm Bureau works hard to keep its members informed. All members receive a monthly subscription to the award-winning Grassroots newspaper. Grassroots is available in print and online.

Jordan Energy

Take advantage of government incentives to lower energy costs for your business! In the September USDA REAP round, you can apply to receive funding for 50% of solar project costs --- up to $1 million! You can get an additional 30% - or more - from the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC). At the end of the day, incentives make commercial solar systems a great investment.

Jordan Energy, a member benefits partner to New York Farm Bureau, will conduct a free solar assessment in preparation for a September grant submission. Please reach out if you are ready for Jordan Energy to help you go solar!
