15 projects receive $634,000 through Columbia Basin Trust
Community buildings in the Columbia Basin will see upgrades this year as part of the Trust’s Energy Sustainability Grants program. Nearly $634,000 will support 15 projects to increase energy efficiency and generate energy to reduce costs and improve sustainability in public buildings.
“Basin residents have been clear that sustainability in the region is a priority. Enabling energy efficiency in public buildings and supporting cost-savings for communities will have lasting positive impacts,” said Mark Brunton, Senior Manager, Delivery of Benefits with the Columbia Basin Trust. “It’s been great to see interest in this work Basin-wide and to support community gathering places with a long-term view in mind.”
These renewable energy and conservation projects support economic development, encourage self-sufficiency, enable access to affordable energy, and promote sustainability. Find out more about this work at: ourtrust.org/energygrants.
