Purpose:
Funded through California Climate Investments, REAP is being designed to advance the on-site use of renewable energy in agricultural operations in California with an emphasis on programs serving disadvantaged and low-income communities.

The workshop provides an opportunity for the public to comment on the draft guidelines for REAP. The draft guidelines, which will be posted publically prior to the workshop, describe the proposed program structure, eligibility criteria for selecting projects for funding, solicitation procedures, project implementation requirements, project reporting, and statutory requirements. Information gathered from the workshop will be considered in developing final guidelines.

Background
Assembly Bill 109 (Ting, Budget Act of 2017, Chapter 249, Statutes of 2017) provided $6 million in Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund monies to the Energy Commission to support renewable energy projects in the agriculture sector to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To implement these efforts, the Energy Commission is developing REAP as a competitive grant program to support the installation of on-site renewable energy projects to serve agricultural operations located in California. The program will emphasize projects in disadvantaged communities and low-income communities. The projects will serve local communities, benefit public health and reduce air pollution.
