Nonprofit Energy Upgrade Open to Public Comment

Energy Department seeks input on $50 million pilot program.

The Department of Energy has released a request for information, asking the public how best to implement a pilot program for nonprofit energy upgrades. The pilot program has been allocated $50 million, which is intended to further the administration’s goal to reduce carbon emissions in commercial buildings and benefit nonprofits by using clean energy.

“Nonprofits and faith communities work tirelessly to improve the overall wellbeing of people, yet many of them must spend large portions of their already tight budgets on building and energy costs,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm. “These pilot investments… will put more money back into our communities and empower the nonprofit sector to contribute to our clean energy transition while continuing to do good for our local economies.”   

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Granholm as she heads administration efforts to transition to clean energy.
  • For energy officials as they field public feedback on the pilot program.
