Grants offered for clean energy projects in West Haven

WEST HAVEN — The West Haven Energy Commission, in partnership with the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, is soliciting proposals for projects that promote the use of clean renewable energy in the city.

Funding for projects is availble through a grant from the CCEF to the WHEC. City leaders, organizations, schools and individuals are invited to submit applications until March 4.

Grant applications can be submitted to the West Haven Energy Commission, City Hall, 355 Main St., West Haven 06516.

Over the next year, the WHEC will make individual micro-grants, ranging from $250 to $1,000 each, to support community-based projects that raise awareness of the availability and benefits of clean energy and to encourage enrollment in the CTCleanEnergyOptions program in West Haven.

Examples of such projects include school sign-up campaigns, a community corn maze, a school calendar to raise awareness about the importance of clean energy and local access cable programming.

Program fact sheets, grant guidelines, the grant application form and the grant report form can be downloaded here. Selected applicants must attend a training session to review grant conditions with the WHEC before awards are made.
