The U.S. Department of Energy has just released a guide on funding energy-efficiency, water-efficiency and clean-energy projects. The guide, titled “Federal Finance Facilities Available for Energy Efficiency Upgrades and Clean Energy Deployment,” can be downloaded here. As the document states, “This guide provides a snapshot of the federal finance facilities available.”
The 60-page list covers programs within the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the U.S. Small Business Administration, the U.S. Department of Transportation and the U.S. Department of the Treasury. This includes information and funding opportunities via the Clean Water State Revolving Fund, the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund, the PowerSaver Home Improvement Loans Pilot Program (upgrades to water heaters, solar and geothermal, etc.), the Public Housing Capital Fund (improvements via water efficiency) and the Multi-Family Housing Energy Efficiency Initiative (solar hot water systems).
