UpGrade Ohio is looking to expand Ohio’s clean energy economy by working with small growers and suppliers who are interested in adding solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays, geothermal, or bio-methane technologies to their nurseries, office facilities or growing operations. Free assessments are now available through the Renewable Energy Development Assistance program (REDA) in eight counties.

The assessments are available to business owners in Athens, Gallia, Hocking, Meigs, Morgan, Perry, Vinton, and Washington counties on a first-come, first-served basis.

UpGrade Ohio is currently partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Southeast Ohio Public Energy Council (SOPEC) to provide the free assessments. Interested applicants can sign up online at

The assessments typically cost $200 or more, but they are available for free during the grant period. UpGrade Ohio also provides grant writing assistance to help businesses locate additional funding for solar, renewable installations and other projects.

Partners in Clean Energy UpGrade Ohio is an educational and charitable organization whose mission is to educate, promote, and facilitate partnerships around reduced energy use and access to renewable energy resources. The organization works with SOPEC to foster a regional energy economy that keeps hard-earned dollars in Southeast Ohio by reducing energy costs and promoting the development of locally owned electric generation and utility assets.
