Renewable Energy Campaign Working in Connecticut

Rocky Hill, Connecticut [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF) presented eight Connecticut towns with grants of $5,000 apiece to help their communities support creative ways of promoting and supporting clean renewable energy in our communities. The Community Innovations Grants Program is funded with $200,000 from CCEF; the first 40 Connecticut cities and towns that have committed to SmartPower’s 20% by 2010 clean energy campaign are being offered a $5,000 block grant by CCEF. The local energy task force in each town solicits and reviews project proposals from nonprofit organizations or individuals and then determines which projects to support with micro-grants of between $250 and $2,000.
