Monday, June 25, 2018
The Wyoming Business Council’s State Energy Office has $325,000 in competitive federal grants available for Wyoming local governments and small businesses seeking to cut their electric bills.
The money is split between three programs.
There is $100,000 available to towns, cities and counties for improvements and retrofits like installing insulation; adding weather sealing; purchase of Energy Star or solar powered appliances; upgrades of showers and faucets; or replacement of boilers, hot water heaters, HVAC systems, windows and doors.
Another $150,000 is set aside for towns, cities and counties to retrofit current lighting systems to energy-efficient systems with occupancy controls and auto dimming according to natural light.
Applicants must sign up for the Wyoming Energy Conservation Improvement Program by June 30 to receive a free energy assessment. The assessment must be completed before submitting an application. Applications are due Aug. 31.
