California's agricultural sector is a vital part of the California economy and California's agricultural production is critical to global food security. Agricultural operations are also vulnerable to climate change. As the State moves forward to achieve its greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals for 2030 and 2050, we must also ensure that the agricultural sector remains vibrant and strong. The installation of onsite renewable energy offers agricultural operations an opportunity to reduce GHG emissions, increase energy reliability, and realize the benefits associated with reduced demand for grid electricity. To support this opportunity, the California Energy Commission is implementing the Renewable Energy for Agriculture Program (REAP).

Authorized with the passage of Assembly Bill 109 (Ting, Budget Act of 2017, Chapter 249, Statutes of 2017) and Senate Bill 856 (Budget and Fiscal Review Committee, Chapter 30, Statutes of 2018), REAP will provide $10 million from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) to support onsite renewable energy projects in the agriculture sector to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As a program funded through California Climate Investments, REAP is designed with the primary goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, through projects that serve local communities, benefit public health and reduce air pollution.
