As a growing leader in Green Energy, Charlotte is setting the bar for how communities achieve energy efficiency and improve conservation. In collaboration with civic and community partners, the City of Charlotte is committed to creating a more sustainable city.
The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG
) Program, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, was created to develop, promote, implement and manage energy efficiency and conservation projects designed to:
- Reduce fossil fuel emissions
- Reduce the total energy use of the eligible entities
- Improve energy efficiency in the transportation, building, and other appropriate sectors
- Create and retain jobs
The EECBG program is administered by the U.S. Department of Energy, which allocated $6.4 million dollars in grant funding to implement 17 energy efficiency and conservation projects, formulated from Charlotte’s Energy Strategy
. The projects managed by Engineering & Property Management range from mechanical and lighting upgrades at City-owned facilities to the installation of electric vehicle charging stations at several locations in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.
During the next few months, we will be adding links to the energy projects below that are managed by Engineering & Property Management:
