Reduced-cost energy audits available


Wyoming agricultural producers, small businesses and rural electric cooperatives all outside of Cheyenne are eligible for low-cost energy audits and renewable energy development assistance.

The program is through the University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Service, State Energy Office and Manufacturing-Works, said Milt Geiger, energy coordinator for the extension service.

If selected, a $1,000 energy audit can be purchased for $250 or the $250 would pay for a $1,000 REDA program. The program is funded by a USDA Rural Development grant.

"Renewable energy systems have the potential to be cost-effective in Wyoming but understanding the specifics of your potential installation is critical to success," said Geiger. "Through the low-cost opportunity offered through a partnership of university and state government entities, small businesses and ag producers can obtain the information about renewable energy and energy efficiency that allows informed decisions."

Non-profits and residential homeowners are not eligible.

Manufacturing-Works is a UW-affiliated nonprofit providing general business, technical and marketing assistance and engineering solutions.

"The cheapest unit of energy is the one never used," said Larry Stewart, director of Manufacturing-Works, "and our engineers will help make sure businesses are using energy as cost-effectively as possible."

Applications are evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications are available through the SEO at 307-777-2824 or at wyomingbusiness.org/energy. REDA applications are being accepted by the UW CES at 307-766-3002 or at wyomingrenewables.org and click on the Incentives link.
