USDA Rural Development Workshop Scheduled for Havre 

The USDA Rural Development Montana agency has scheduled a fourth workshop about small business and agriculture energy efficiency and renewable energy projects because of the popularity of the other workshops held earlier this year. This workshop will be held on Wednesday, March 11 , at the Bear Paw Development Center, 48 Second Avenue in Havre. 

Because interest is so widespread and seating is limited, pre-registration is required. Write or call Lea McGiboney to reserve your place: lea.mcgiboney at mt.usda.gov , phone 406-757-7580 , extension 4. 

The workshop will highlight Montana businesses that have realized a return on investment as a result of improvements made with the help of programs such as Rural Energy for America (REAP), utility commercial and rural electrical co-op rebates, and other state and local funding programs. Rural business owners, agriculture producers, and system installers will take away tools, templates, and business case studies to make their energy efficiency improvements or renewable energy system become a reality. 

NCAT Energy Engineer Vicki Lynne will be a presenter at the workshop along with representatives of USDA Rural Development and the Montana Department of Environmental Quality. Other speakers are from the Bear Paw Development Center, Hill County Electric, the Montana Cooperative Development Center, Small Business Administration, the Small Business Development Center, and Triangle Telephone Cooperative. 

Time is also set aside for attendees to talk directly with the experts about their specific projects and goals. 

Join us on March 11th in Havre and learn how to put energy to work for you.
