Metzgar, Kasunic Announce Conservation Works Grants for Somerset County and Berlin Borough
11/18/2009
Rep. Carl Walker Metzgar (R-Somerset) and Sen. Richard Kasunic (D-Fayette/Somerset/Washington/Westmoreland) announced today that Pennsylvania Conservation Works grants are being awarded to Berlin Borough for $249,977 and Somerset County for $249,784.
 
“The grants are welcomed in the borough and the county as a way to help mitigate the rising energy costs that they, and all of us face,” said Metzgar. “This funding will help advance the cause of energy conservation, which is critical in our time, and will defray the costs that come to entities who try to improve their overall energy usage.”
 
Sen. Kasunic stressed the importance of upgrading facilities and procedures in the energy realm to help the environment and expand the use of renewable energy.
 
“We are coming a long way as a society in improving energy technology and putting this to use in the real world,” said Kasunic. “I am proud that we are taking the lead in Pennsylvania in this area, and these grants are proof that we are serious in helping expand the implementation of renewable energy projects.”
 
The grants, administered by the Department of Environmental Protection come from the American Recover and Reinvestment Act of 2009, known as the federal stimulus, and the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant program. It is designed to help local government and non-profit entities fund renewable energy efficiency projects to lead to a minimum 25 percent conservation of all energy used.
 
There are many ways in which projects can take shape, such as deploying renewable energy technologies on government buildings, energy efficiency retrofits on existing structures, upgrades at wastewater treatment plants and others.
