SourceOne Tackles Energy Services for 6 CT Towns
Six Connecticut municipalities: Branford, Durham, Guilford, Killingworth, Madison and Westbrook have chosen Veolia Energy North America’s energy management subsidiary, SourceOne, to perform energy services. The overall goal of this effort is to achieve energy savings of at least 5 percent across all six communities, with an emphasis on projects that involve regional cooperation and savings.
The six towns developed a regional energy commission and jointly applied for and received a $250,000 grant from the State Office of Policy and Management. The scope of the energy services delivered will include energy audits, renewable energy assessments, procurement review and assistance, grant/incentive research, short and long term energy conservation projects, and project planning.
The project is part of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program, which was created to assist U.S. cities, counties and states to develop, promote, implement and manage energy efficiency and conservation projects and programs. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) appropriated $3.2 billion for EECBGs to be distributed by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) across the country. Entities in the State of Connecticut are eligible to receive EECBG ARRA funding totaling up to $24.5 million.
