Energy use and it's availability, now and in the future, have been of increasing concern as the decade of the 1970's elapsed and the 1980's begin. This paper describes a farm energy audit project that addressed this concern of energy use by farms in Michigan. The objectives of this paper are fourfold. First, is documentation of the Michigan Farm Energy Audit Study. This involves the step-by-step procedure as to formulation and development of the project. The second objective is to report the results of Phase I of the project. The third objective is to evaluate the feasibility of going from a pilot program to a more generalized system. This evaluation includes specification of the changes needed to expand the project to a more general system. Finally, the fourth objective is to evaluate the potential use and benefits of the project for farmers.
