When we partner with your school district to find energy grants, we’ll look for the programs available in your state and at the federal level. State-level programs can vary widely from state to state. For example, schools and districts in Ohio have to use programs for commercial energy projects, such as AEP Ohio’s Commercial Custom Project Rebate Program. This program has the word “commercial” in its name, but it’s also available for schools and community governments to use. On the other hand, schools in Oklahoma can take advantage of their state’s Energy Loan Fund for Schools program. This program provides $200,000 to schools that make improvements in their building systems through solar power, wind power, or biomass power. To find the right energy grants, rebates, and tax credits for your school, we first have to determine what’s available in your state.
Once we locate the programs in your state, we assess which ones fit your energy and financial needs. We look for programs that meet your needs and help you meet your energy consumption goals through renewable energy improvements or other energy efficiency projects.
