Cortland County Business Development Corporation (CCBDC) would create and publicize a showcase of energy independence for small farms through multi-tiered use of small-scale renewable energy equipment, enabling an agribusiness (Hunter & Hilsberg), and a farm (Heidelberry Farms), to function 24/7 completely off-grid. This would be used for education, outreach, and demonstration for implementing practical small-scale renewable energy solutions at farms throughout the Northeast.
