Maine Companies Awarded Energy Efficiency Grants
January 6, 2010
Press Announcement Summary
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUGUSTA - Governor John E. Baldacci today announced $8.9 million in grants to support 16 projects under Maine’s Industrial Grant Program. Joining the Governor at the announcement were legislators, Maine Public Utilities Commission Chair, members of the Energy and Carbon Savings Trust and winning company representatives.
The program is administered by the Maine Public Utilities Commission’s Efficiency Maine program. The Industrial Grant Program funds come from a combination of two sources: the federal Recovery Act and the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative funds distributed by the Energy and Carbon Savings Trust. The $8.9 million in grants will leverage more than $81 million in private investments. Projects were selected based on how well their project added value to the Maine economy, saved energy and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
PUC Commission Chair Sharon Reishus said “Maine’s industrial sector presents great opportunities for energy savings, emissions reductions and economic stimulus. We are pleased to support projects that show exceptional promise in meeting these objectives.”
A table of the energy efficiency grant winners follows is available on the Governor’s Office website: http://www.maine.gov/portal/index.php. For more information see the Efficiency Maine website: www.efficiencymaine.com .
