The US Department of Agriculture Rural Energy For America Program Grants/Renewable Energy Systems/Energy Efficiency Improvement Program (REAP/RES/EEI) Grants Program provides grants for energy audits and renewable energy development assistance. It also provides funds to agricultural producers and rural small businesses to purchase and install renewable energy systems and make energy efficiency improvements.
The grants are awarded on a competitive basis and can be up to 25% of total eligible project costs. Grants are limited to $500,000 for renewable energy systems and $250,000 for energy efficiency improvements. Grant requests as low as $2,500 for renewable energy systems and $1,500 for energy efficiency improvements will be considered. At least 20% of the grant funds awarded must be for grants of $20,000 or less.
The program is designed to assist farmers, ranchers and rural small businesses that are able to demonstrate financial need. All agricultural producers, including farmers and ranchers, who gain 50% or more of their gross income from the agricultural operations are eligible. Small businesses that are located in a rural area can also apply. Rural electric cooperatives may also be eligible to apply.
Most rural projects that reduce energy use and result in savings for the agricultural producer or small business are eligible as energy efficiency projects. These include projects such as retrofitting lighting or insulation, or purchasing or replacing equipment with more efficiency units. Eligible renewable energy projects include projects that produce energy from wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, hydro power and hydrogen-based sources. The projects can produce any form of energy including, heat, electricity, or fuel.

US Global LLC provides debt, equity, and project finance investment in the building, energy, technology, and manufacturing sectors in the United States. While we typically make lead investments in larger transactions we will invest in syndication. The largest number of USG’s investments to date have been in the energy sector. These investments range from development of independent energy projects to investment in public and private companies. USG has focused in particular on the alternative energy sector where tax credits and/or other tax benefits are available including: clean coal, renewable energy, coal beneficiation and recovery, waste-to-energy and energy storage.
USG has invested in technology driven opportunities across a variety of sectors including: energy related technologies, biomedical technologies, pharmaceutical development and waste separation technologies. In analyzing these opportunities, US Global is sector agnostic, focusing instead on companies with innovative products and services that have achieved or are likely to quickly achieve a critical level of commercial acceptance. Our investments can range from $1 million at the first outside round to over ten million at later stages of investment.
Within the clean technology space we have investmented in companies that remanufacture coal into a cleaner fuel source (USG Synfuel, Headwaters Inc, Evergreen Energy) energy IT (Pegasus), and energy storage (Reliable Power).
