Alternative Energy Grants Available

Townships that want to begin using alternative energy may apply for grants or loans through the Commonwealth Finance Authority’s (CFA) Renewable Energy Program and Solar Energy Program. The deadline for applications is July 18.

These programs are jointly administered by the CFA and state Departments of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Community and Economic Development (DCED).

The Alternative and Clean Energy Program provides grants and loans for the use, development, and construction of alternative and clean energy projects, infrastructure associated with compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas fueling stations, and energy efficiency and conservation projects.

For more information about these energy programs, call DCED’s Ryan Emerson at (717) 787-6245.
