State Announces Clean Tennessee Energy Grant Program

Nashville – Tennessee Deputy Governor Claude Ramsey, Department of Environment and Conservation Commissioner Bob Martineau and General Services Commissioner Steve Cates will announce a series of energy efficiency projects in state government on Wednesday, Jan. 11, at 10 a.m.
Projects are designed to both increase cost savings and decrease emissions.  In addition to this round of state projects, details of the new Clean Tennessee Energy Grant Program will be announced.  The competitive grant program will fund energy efficiency projects for local governments and municipalities, utilities, other organizations and private entities. 
“These projects will benefit Tennesseans through reduced emissions, as well as reduced expenses,” said Martineau.  “We will continue to look for ways to maximize efficiencies within state government, and I hope that others will take part in the grant program so we can spread these benefits even further.”
Funding for the projects comes from an April 2011 Clean Air Act settlement with the Tennessee Valley Authority.  Under the Consent Decree, Tennessee will receive $26.4 million over five years to fund clean air programs in the state.
