DOE Grants Back $452 million In Energy-Efficiency Upgrades

Text size: A A

The Dept. of Energy has awarded $452 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grants to states and localities to help fund energy-efficiency upgrades to buildings. In announcing the “Retrofit Ramp-Up” grants on April 21, DOE said the federal funding will be complemented by $2.8 billion from non-federal sources over three years. DOE received more than $3.5 billion in applications, far more than the amount it had available. The largest of the 25 grants was $40 million, to the New York State Research and Development Authority. Maine, Michigan and Los Angeles County, Calif., each were awarded $30 million. DOE says the final grant amounts are subject to negotiation.
