ACT FEDERAL PROGRAM

The Agricultural Clean Technology (ACT) Program is a 5-year program offering funding up to 50% to support the purchase and installation of commercially available clean technologies, like our SunRangerTM Adjustable-Tilt Solar System. Eligible applicants can receive a maximum funding amount up to $2,000,000 per project. Applicants can receive funding for multiple projects up to a total maximum of $5,000,000 per recipient. Priority for funding will be given to projects focused on green energy and energy efficiency, as well as those showing clear evidence of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental co-benefits.

Who is Eligible?

Applicants must be individuals capable of entering into a legally binding agreement and must be Canadian entities (incorporated in Canada). Eligible applicants are:

    • For-profit organizations, including farm business and agri-food processors
    • Not-for-profit organizations, including co-operatives
    • Individuals, sole proprietors
    • Indigenous groups

What does the application process look like?

While the 2021 fiscal year is now full, the program will continue to take applications for the following fiscal years.

This process includes a preliminary “Project Summary Form” that will determine if your proposed project is eligible for funding, followed by a conference call to further discuss this with a program representative. The final stage involves preparing the “Full Application” which will provide the program with additional information regarding your Farm & Ag business, your proposed project, as well as requires further documents to support your application.

This process can be quite daunting and time-consuming, which is where our team at Azgard Solar can help. Our team is well-versed in this process and can quickly and effectively prepare your application from start to finish, ensuring the process is as straightforward as possible so you can continue to focus on your growing business!
