Energy Retrofits for Public Buildings
The Energy Retrofits for Public Buildings program provides grant funding for public entities such as towns, cities, tribes and public agencies to make energy updates to public buildings and facilities. These retrofits save money and reduce pollution for schools, hospitals, community centers, affordable housing, and other public buildings. The program includes grants for energy efficiency and solar for state and local governments, as well as the State Project Improvement grants to help state agencies invest in energy efficiency while making other improvements.
The Energy Efficiency Grant Program funds projects for improvements to existing public-owned facilities and related projects that result in energy and operational cost savings. Energy Efficiency grants are serving communities throughout Washington.
Solar Energy grants provide competitive funding to install solar at public buildings and facilities, such as schools, hospitals, civic buildings and wastewater treatment plants. These grants cut energy costs, reduce pollution and showcase solar projects in communities across the state.
SPI grants provide funding for state agencies to redesign building projects to increase energy efficiency and environmental performance. Funding covers the additional costs of more efficient project options, such as higher efficiency heating systems or windows, for projects at existing state-owned buildings. SPI grants cut energy costs, reduce pollution, and improve the health and comfort of state buildings in communities across the state.
