Bonds

Wyoming Energy Authority has the ability to issue up to $4 billion in industrial revenue bonds for energy facilities and related supporting infrastructure that may include all facilities, structures and properties incidental and necessary or useful in the production or transmission of energy. This may include transmission lines, pipelines and export facilities. Wyoming Energy Authority does not currently have the authority to issue a bond on generation projects.

When Wyoming Energy Authority’s bonding authority is used, there is no cost and no risk to the state of Wyoming. Our bonds are sold on the private market to investors and any proceeds are used to finance projects.

To learn more about our bonding authority and process, please contact Glen Murrell, Wyoming Energy Authority Executive Director, by emailing glen.murrell@wyo.gov or calling 307-823-2845.

Grants

The State Energy Program uses federal grants to offer a range of programs to help reduce energy consumption in Wyoming. In 2020 there are three competitive grant programs available; applications closed in August.

Contact Sarah Young, Director of Public Affairs and Communications, with any questions or to inquire about future opportunities. Email sarah.young@wyo.gov or call 307-635-3573.

Energy Performance Contracting

Energy Performance Contracting is a process through which energy efficiency and capital improvement upgrades are funded by the energy and maintenance cost savings generated by the improvements themselves. Those cost savings are formally “captured” and used to pay back the funding source.

For more information on Energy Performance Contracting opportunities in Wyoming, please contact Sarah Young, Director of Public Affairs and Communications. Email sarah.young@wyo.gov or call 307-635-3573.
