Projects in Levy County and Fort Walton Beach will receive federal money that is part of a $124 million effort involving renewable energy and fertilizer production, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Thursday.

The Rural Energy for America Program will provide $137,398 to install a solar photovoltaic system at Blue Grotto LLC in Levy County.

Another $53,447 will be used to install a solar photovoltaic system on the roof of Adaptive Enterprises Corp. in Fort Walton Beach.

Funding for the federal program comes from the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act.
