Bedford has been awarded an Energy Efficiency and Block Grant (EECBG) sub-grant in the amount of $150,000 for its grant application seeking funds to establish Thermal Efficiency at the Lane School. Funds for this award were made available by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 through the US Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block grant program. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) developed and is responsible for administering this sub-grant program.
The award is intended to provide an incentive to districts working to create a green energy future for the Commonwealth. DOER and its Green Communities Division will work with Bedford to implement the Lane School project.
Special thanks to Richard Jones, Director of Facilites, and Brenda Kelly, a member of Bedford’s Energy Task Force for procuring this competitive grant for our schools.
