Ecology Action Awarded $5.8 Million Energy Efficiency Grant to Support Food Banks in Disadvantaged and Tribal Communities

“Ecology Action has been awarded a contract with the Department of Energy as part of the Renew America’s Nonprofits Program. The Renew America’s Nonprofits Program is helping nonprofits across the country reduce emissions and amplify their community impacts. Our program will serve the facilities of Food Banks and their distribution networks in Western States. We will provide turn-key energy efficiency retrofit support to improve facility operations and drive energy bill savings. To announce this award, the DOE scheduled a press conference in San Jose today with the Secretary of Energy, Jennifer Granholm. The press conference was held at Martha’s Kitchen, a food pantry that benefitted from energy efficiency projects that we installed in 2012. Martha’s Kitchen was chosen to host the announcement because it represents the types of facilities that will directly benefit from this award.” Keep READING.
