Farm Energy Alternatives



Looking for energy-related equipment, funding, or a local business with the right expertise?
Try ATTRA's Directory of Energy Alternatives.

The heavy use of fossil-based fuels and fertilizers in the U.S. food system lies at the heart of many of our environmental, health, and national security problems. Sustainable agriculture and sustainable energy are really two sides of the same coin.

The publications, success stories, and links within these pages explain how to make farm buildings more energy efficient, use the sun's energy to heat greenhouses and pump water, choose and put up wind turbines, make and use biofuels, and much more.
