Recipients include Schools and Municipalities
The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (“PSCW”) has made award determinations for the 2022 Energy Innovation Grant Program, funding 32 grant recipients for a total of $10 million. The monies are available through Department of Energy funding originally provided to the State of Wisconsin under the American Rescue and Recovery Act of 2009.
Eligible recipients of the grant money include municipalities, municipal utilities, schools, and other local governments. This year’s recipients include the City of Sun Prairie, Madison Area Technical College, Southwest Technical College, the Village of Viola, the City of Antigo, the City of Appleton, the City of Menomonee, and the City of Middleton. Three broad categories of projects were supported: Renewable Energy and Energy Storage, Energy Efficiency and Demand Response, and Comprehensive Energy Planning.
Although applications are closed for this round of funding, another round of funding is expected to occur in 2024. Local governments interested in applying can find additional information at boardmanclark.com/energy-grant.
