Energy Upgrade Funding Opportunities for Alabama Businesses

The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs is currently accepting proposals to fund retrofit projects for agricultural facilities, non-profit organizations, and K-12 schools. The funds are appropriated by the State Energy Program, a program overseen by ADECA’s Energy Division.

ADECA’s prime goal is to adhere to the mission of “Building Better Alabama Communities.” Each year the department dispenses hundreds of millions of dollars to Alabama cities, counties, non-profit organizations and others for the purpose of supporting economic development projects, infrastructure improvements, job training, energy conservation, etc.

The State Energy Program is a formula grant funded by the U.S. Department of Energy used to promote energy conservation, reduce the demand and reliance on imported energy, and reduce the impact of energy production and use on the environment.

The Energy Division plans to make four $10,000 awards to nonprofits, three $10,000 awards for agricultural facilities, and four $15,000 awards to K-12 schools. Submissions are due by August 21st at 5:00pm CDT. Interested applicants can find all information necessary to apply here.

As a participating energy service provider for ADECA’s AlabamaSAVES program, SEA possesses the know-how and experience to support prospective applicants with their technical needs.
