Small business owners know all too well, energy is expensive. But replacing or improving energy-inefficient equipment is expensive, too. That’s why the USDA enacted the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP).
The program provides government-guaranteed loans and grants to agricultural producers and rural small businesses to upgrade, replace, or construct energy-efficient systems. Powering the instruments of industry just got easier.
NAC CEO Joseph Rowell and Veritex Community Bank President and CEO Malcolm Holland unpack how the USDA's Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) benefits business owners and brokers alike through government-guaranteed commercial loans specifically earmarked for renewable energy projects across rural America.
