Massachusetts Cities Receive $18.4M for Energy Resiliency Projects
Massachusetts’ Community Clean Energy Resiliency Initiative announced a second round of grants to municipalities to implement clean energy technologies.
The first round of grants totaled $7.4 million. The most recent round totaled $18.4 million. Through the Resiliency Initiative, $40 million in state funding has been made available to cities and towns that identify facilities in their communities where the loss of electrical service would result in the disruption of a critical public safety or life sustaining function, including emergency services, shelters, food and fuel supply and communications infrastructure.
Projects eligible for funding include clean energy generation, energy storage, energy management systems, islanding technologies and microgrids. The recent round of grants includes awards for combined heat and power systems, battery energy storage and solar PV systems.
