REAP Funding Helps Pennsylvania Business Go Solar
Pennsylvania Ag Connection - 03/24/2023

Three Rivers Farm helps bring fresh, locally grown produce to the marketplace in a sustainable way. Nathan Holmes is the owner and founder of the business and knew early on that he wanted to help local farmers while fueling economic development in his community.

As a Pittsburgh-based wholesale distributor, Three Rivers Farm stores fresh produce in its warehouse to ensure products get to the marketplace at desired temperatures. But fronting the electrical costs for the operation became a daunting task. With the help of a $20,000 Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) grant, solar panels were installed on the roof of their distribution center.

“The fact that there was this program to help you access these funds and pay off the initial investment faster motivated me to do it,” Holmes said.
