Alberta farmers seeking to make grain dryer improvements will have access to funding through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.
The Efficient Grain Dryer Program is an energy efficiency program intended to assist producers with reducing the overall energy use on their operations. The program will only fund equipment that shows a significant energy efficiency improvement over standard practice. Grain dryer and grain drying system components that significantly improve energy efficiency above standard configuration are eligible under the program. These components can be factory options on new equipment or retrofits installed on existing equipment. Program Funding is 50% of Eligible Expenses.
The program is retroactive to April 1, 2018 and $2 million has been earmarked for farmers. Please visit cap.alberta.ca/CAP/program/EFFICIENT_GRAIN_DRYER or call 310-3276 to see if you’re eligible and how to apply.
