In January 2010, Michigan enacted the Public Act 242 of 2009, which established the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Revolving Loan Fund Program. The Farm Energy Audit/Assessment portion of this program is available to family farms in Michigan for projects recommended through the Michigan Farm Energy Audit program.

Applicants are evaluated based on minimum credit standards and face-to-face interviews. Loan recipients are required to submit quarterly reports related to energy use. Program funds cannot be used for any systems installed before the date of the loan agreement. For questions regarding farm energy audits, contact Al Go at Michigan State University.
