Millions in Green Energy Grants, Loans Remain to Be Used

More than two years into a three-year government program to create jobs and boost energy efficiency in homes and businesses in three southeastern Wisconsin cities, many millions of dollars in grants and low-interest loans available for property owners remain uncommitted. Funded by federal stimulus funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the $20 million program is focused on Madison, Milwaukee and Racine. And, while more than 500 homeowners and about 100 businesses have seen green updates under the program -- known collectively as Wisconsin Energy Efficiency, or WE2, and as Green Madison locally -- much opportunity remains in the program's last seven months. After that, any unused money must be returned to the federal government.
