NORWALK — The Mayor’s Energy and Environmental Task Force has landed a $5,000 grant to educate local building owners about energy saving opportunities.
Task force members learned this week that their application for funding from Connecticut Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) had been approved.
“We’re planning on direct outreach to building owners,” said Councilman John Kydes, task force chairman. “Building owners can take advantage of incentives and overall lower their energy costs. With the help of the Mayor’s Office and (Grants Coordinator) Katherine Pytleski, the Mayor’s Energy and Environmental Task Force was able to obtain this grant.”
C-PACE helps commercial, industrial and multi-family property owners obtain affordable, long-term financing for smart energy upgrades to their buildings. The program allows such owners to finance qualifying energy efficiency and clean energy improvements through placement of a voluntary assessment on their property tax bill, according to the organization’s website.
