Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today announced that the USDA is providing loans and grants for nine renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in North Carolina under the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP).
Among the recipients is Martins Creek Solar NC, LLC which will receive a $926,000 loan and a $500,000 grant to purchase equipment for a solar production facility that will be located at Martins Creek School. When completed, the project is expected to produce 500 kW, enough renewable energy to power an estimated 545 homes per year.
