The Tennessee EECBG program has now awarded $13.4 million in grants to 146 communities throughout the state to implement energy efficient projects.
The EECBG program is projected to produce more than 92 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy savings annually, resulting in an estimated cost-savings of $8 million per year for Tennessee communities. In addition, approximately 149 jobs will be created by the 146 grants awarded.
A brief description of the four additional communities’ projects is attached. For more information on the EECBG program in Tennessee, visit http://tnecd.gov/recovery/eecbg.html.
The $100,000 grant will be used to replace pumps and addition of variable frequency drives at the Benton’s Water Treatment Plant.
