Producers may use this audit report to apply for the USDA REAP program, or through other incentive programs facilitated by local utility companies. Chad Martin is a Renewable Energy Extension Specialist within the Purdue Ag & Biological Engineering Department, and is a Certified Farm Energy Auditor according to ASABE Standards.
