USDA solar grants for rural businesses

Published July 27, 2021

USDA’s Renewable Energy for America Program (REAP) grants cover up to 25% of solar project costs for eligible businesses.

With USDA grant + federal tax benefits, businesses can recoup up to 70% of solar project costs in the first year!

USDA grant eligibility criteria to consider:

  • Is your business located in a rural area? If you aren’t sure, we can easily determine rural eligibility using USDA’s map.
  • Does your home share a meter with your business? If so, we will need to install a separate electric meter for your business and solar installation.

LightWave Solar has put together over 100 REAP grant applications for our commercial solar customers, and we have a 95% approval record!
