Town awarded $50K energy efficiency grant

Director of Facilities David Bagdasarian has announced that the Town of Cape Elizabeth has been selected to receive a $50,000 grant from the federal Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG), awarded through the State of Maine by the U.S. Department of Energy and distributed via the Community Resilience Partnership.  The grant operates on a reimbursement basis, with funds released in two installments: 50% at the beginning, and 50% upon project completion.

The achievement results from the town's collaboration with the Greater Portland Council of Governments (GPCOG) in developing the town's Climate Action Plan.  The first project under this grant will be upgrading to LED lighting at Town Hall and the Police Department.

It is expected that the Town Council will consider approval of this award at the next Town Council meeting.
