PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island has awarded its first grants to support energy efficiency projects at farms and help farmers transition to renewable power.

The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management says it awarded a total of about $52,000 to three local farms to help "green" their operations to save energy and money.

The recipients are Harmony Hills Farm in Glocester, Red Planet Vegetable Farm in Johnston and Pat's Pastured in East Greenwich.

The awards were provided through the new Rhode Island Farm Energy Program.

DEM says it awarded the grants in partnership with the Rhode Island Resource Conservation & Development Area Council and the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources.

Harmony Hills and Red Planet each plan to install a solar Photovoltaic system. Pat's Pastured is upgrading its refrigeration and freezer system.
