Today, Deputy Agriculture Undersecretary for Rural Development Doug O’Brien announced that USDA is funding a series of projects to convert biomass to energy through USDA’s Rural Energy for America Program (REAP).


O’Brien stated that, “The Obama Administration is assisting cooperatives, small businesses, farmers and ranchers, as they work to reduce their energy costs. When energy costs are reduced, American rural businesses become more competitive, allowing them to expand and create jobs.”
