$12.5 Million In Energy Development Authority Funding Announced By Corbett

Gov. Tom Corbett Thursday announced nearly $12.5 million in PA Energy Development Authority grants to 28 local governments, schools and  businesses for alternative and clean energy projects, along with projects deploying technologies such as solar energy, hydropower, biomass and energy efficiency.
“We are supporting a more diverse and robust energy sector that protects our environment and uses our resources more efficiently,” said Gov. Corbett. “These grants will help organizations harness alternative and renewable energy to increase energy efficiency throughout Pennsylvania.”
The awarded PEDA grants will help pay for such projects as the installation of solar arrays, replacement of old heating units and street lights with more energy efficient models, and the use of biogas from wastewater systems for industrial power and heating needs.    
Those eligible to apply included non-profit corporations; Pennsylvania schools, colleges and universities; any Pennsylvania municipality, and public or private corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, associations and other legal business entities.
Funded activities must be conducted entirely in Pennsylvania and be in compliance with applicable laws.
PEDA is an independent public financing authority created in 1982 by the Pennsylvania Energy Development Authority and the Emergency Powers Act. The authority’s mission is to finance clean, advanced energy projects in Pennsylvania.
A list of projects funded is available online.
