Grants to Fund 66 Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Projects throughout Oregon

(Salem) - The Oregon Department of Energy today announced $6.5 million in federal funds for 66 energy efficiency and renewable projects in Oregon city and county buildings. These projects are funded by American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) under the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Formula Block Grant.
 
Government entities are the only ones eligible for funding under this grant program. Federal criteria requires that at least 60 percent of the funds that the state receives be distributed to the smaller cities and counties ineligible for a direct allocation under this program. Under this criterion, 228 Oregon cities and 26 Oregon counties were eligible to compete for the funding.
 
The Oregon Department of Energy received 100 applications for projects in five specified categories:
  • Energy and water conservation projects
  • Energy efficiency
  • Project financing
  • Renewable energy backup systems
  • Transportation 
 
The Oregon Department of Energy selected projects through a competitive selection process. Selection criteria included energy impact, project readiness, jobs created/retained, leverage of non-federal funds and other criteria such as economic, environmental, societal impacts, local unemployment and geographic distribution of proposed projects. The majority of awards were made to energy efficiency projects.
 
The projects selected for funding have three years to complete their projects.
