Grants funded by Casey-backed Inflation Reduction Act

Grants will go towards purchasing of sunlight-to-electricity storage and distribution systems

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) announced $1,115,060 for two rural Pennsylvania businesses to purchase solar photovoltaic systems. The systems will convert captured solar energy into electricity which can be used to power various machines and operations and save these farms and businesses thousands of dollars per year. The two grants of $115,060 and $1,000,000 come from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) established by the Casey-backed Inflation Reduction Act. 

“When we invest in technology that lowers operating costs for businesses, we’re investing in their long-term success,” said Senator Casey. “This funding from the Inflation Reduction Act is not only ensuring the success of businesses in rural Pennsylvania, but also reducing harmful emissions and protecting our environment for our future generations.”
