TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture is providing incentives for rural Kansas to improve energy efficiency.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1gBme5d ) the USDA's Rural Energy for America Program is providing about $394,000 in grants for 38 renewable energy and energy-efficiency projects in Kansas. Projects in 21 other states also received funds.

Of the 38 Kansas projects, eight were for businesses, with the remainder going to agricultural operations. Most involved replacing equipment or systems deemed to be inefficient, including switching from diesel to electricity or natural gas or replacing doors, windows and heating systems.

The largest grant in Kansas, for $33,000, went to Historic Breckenridge Hotel in Emporia. The grant will pay to replace some of the windows in a century-old high school that's being converted into a hotel and convention center.
