WEA Announces State Energy Program Grants

The Wyoming Energy Authority, through its State Energy Program, is offering grants for energy audits and retrofits for K-12 Schools, Local Governments, Small Businesses & Agriculture Producers

Cheyenne, WY – The Wyoming Energy Authority’s State Energy Program announced today the opening of its annual grant program for energy audits and retrofits for K-12 Schools, Local Governments, and Small Businesses. 

In the 2021 grant cycle, the State Energy Program will provide grants to K-12 schools for lighting retrofits, to local governments for energy efficiency retrofits, and to small businesses for energy audits and retrofits. Applications are open from April 19 – May 28, 2021. 

Grants range from $5,000 – $25,000 and have different cash matching requirements depending on the program. Recipients interested in the K-12 Schools or Local Government grants will also receive a free energy audit. WEA opened applications last month for its new grant program for Agriculture & Rural Small Business Energy Audits.

New this year, the Agriculture and Rural Small Business Energy Audit grants are available to agricultural producers statewide, and to small businesses in rural areas looking for assistance to identify cost-effective opportunities to lower their energy usage. Grants are up to $3,000 and can be used to complete an energy audit. Grant applications are being accepted now and the program will be open until all funds are expended. 

In 2020, the State Energy Program was able to fund 32 projects across Wyoming. This program is funded through a formula grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. Grants operate on an annual cycle.
