Mayor Jennings is pleased to announce the Downtown Business Energy Efficiency Matching Grant Program, which will further the City’s effort to become more sustainable by increasing energy efficiency in the business sector. The primary objective of the program is to help fund eligible energy efficiency improvements in order to reduce the overall consumption of energy. The reduction in energy consumption is a benefit to businesses by lowering energy bills and overhead costs. The program employs a public/private partnership approach to provide incentives to owners of buildings to improve the energy efficiency of the buildings through eligible improvements including: insulation, windows, energy star products, HVAC and renewable energy. Funding for this program comes from the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) as part of the EECBG program.
