Governor Rendell Announces $22 Million Investment in Energy Conservation Projects

Conservation Works! is a $22 million competitive grant program, funded through the ARRAct, to help local government and non-profit organizations improve energy efficiency, curb energy consumption and reduce energy costs by at least 25 percent. Conservation Works! provides grants of up to $250,000 to individual local government and non-profit entities and $500,000 for combined government projects to conserve or reduce energy use. The program covers Pennsylvania boroughs, townships and cities with fewer than 35,000 residents and counties with fewer than 200,000 residents, municipalities not eligible for direct formula grants from the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant program. More than $15.3 million will be distributed to local governments, with the remainder going to non-profit organizations. All projects must create jobs, be able to start work within six months and be completed prior to May 31, 2011.
