Bee & Honey Farm Gets USDA REAP Grant for Solar Panels

When Bee Way Farms found out a USDA REAP Grant for solar panels was an option, they jumped at the opportunity!

With $700+ utility bills from Portland General Electric (PGE) each month, the Damascus, Oregon bee and honey farm knew solar panels would save them and their ag business tons of money.

And thanks to the USDA REAP Grant for Renewable Energy, a large chunk of their solar install costs were covered! Green Ridge Solar took the lead and applied for the USDA REAP Grant on behalf of Bee Way Farms. And through our tireless effort, they were approved!

That’s one of the benefits of working with Green Ridge Solar. We find every solar incentive for you. Plus, we apply for those incentives and take care of the paperwork. That way you save as much as possible on your solar panel installation.

With their new solar panels, Bee Way Farms will produce as est. 100% of their power from solar. As a commercial farm, that has a huge impact on their business. The bee and honey farm will save an estimated $85,000 on energy bills in the first 10 years. That’s upwards of $225,000 over the next 25 years. That’s not including energy cost inflation! As energy prices continue to increase, those savings will only grow bigger and bigger.

If utility prices keep rising at they rate they have been recently, that savings can compound even higher! This is especially true in the Damascus, OR area, which has been installing more and more solar. This has meant millions in energy savings for those Eugene families and businesses.
