Nine Lancaster County farms and businesses will receive $1 million total in federal grants to purchase solar power systems.

The Lancaster County grants are among 17 awarded to rural Pennsylvania farms and businesses through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Energy for America Program, a program created through the Inflation Reduction Act.

Lancaster County grant recipients include: $345,000 for Lawn Equipment Parts Company Inc. in Marietta; $22,958 for Keith D. Frey’s poultry farm in Millersville; $29,525 for Lanco Mechanicals Inc., a plumbing and electrical services company in Ephrata; $61,725 for Fire Line Equipment LLC, a firefighting and emergency equipment supplier in New Holland; $60,000 for Burkholder Capital LLC’s Adamstown Car Wash in Reinholds; $116,111 for Christian Landis’ Worth The Wait dairy and cattle farm in Stevens; $13,581 for Bowers & Lobeck Inc., a cabinetry and kitchen remodeler in Manor Township; $274,050 for the M5 Companies LLC real estate company in Manheim; and $82,850 for the Twin Pine Ford Inc. car dealership in Ephrata.

“When we invest in technology that lowers operating costs for businesses, we’re investing in their long-term success,” U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., stated in a Wednesday press release. “This funding from the Inflation Reduction Act is not only ensuring the success of businesses in rural Pennsylvania, but also reducing harmful emissions and protecting our environment for our future generations.”
