DOE Invests in School Energy Upgrades

 Grant applications open to improve aging facilities.

The Department of Energy (DOE) has announced that grant applications are open for their Renew America’s Schools grant program. This initial round of funding will distribute $80 million toward updating the lighting, electrical, heating, and cooling systems of aging school buildings. Structures with the highest levels of need will be prioritized for the 2023 fiscal year.

“By making our students’ learning environments healthier with these critical energy improvements, our children will be better able to reach their full potential in the classroom,” said Secretary Jennifer Granholm. “DOE is working diligently to deploy these critical funds so that schools can start turning infrastructure improvements into healthier learning environments and big cost savings, as soon as possible.”  

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the energy secretary as she collaborates on improvements to school buildings.
  • For discernment for energy officials as they approve funding for energy efficiency upgrades.
  • For the president and his energy advisors as they prioritize projects and programs.
