Do you have an interest in U.S. energy policy? Are you in the ag sector looking for options in renewable energy?  Here’s your chance to ask USDA!

On Thursday, April 5 at 1:30pm ET, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack himself will sit down for 45 minutes to answer YOUR questions on the Department’s renewable energy programs, and how USDA is helping build a secure energy future for America.  Just submit them to the @USDA Twitter account using the hashtag #AskUSDA.

In January, we launched to serve as a one-stop shop for data about energy efficiency and renewable energy programs at USDA.  We want individuals to learn about our work and see how their community can get involved in an expanding renewable energy and bio-based economy that is creating jobs and driving economic growth across rural America. And now, with our inaugural USDA Virtual Office Hours, you have an opportunity to ask the Secretary questions that pertain to your individual energy needs or larger USDA programs and activities.

We hope you’ll join us, and we look forward to hearing your questions! Feel free to send them to us in advance using the hashtag #AskUSDA or follow along live on April 5.  See you there!
