Seeking Applications – October 15, 2013 – January 15, 2014
CENTER VALLEY, Pa., Oct. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- John Costlow, Director of Technical Services, Sustainable Energy Fund (SEF), announced today at the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce Energy & Environment Conference, the introduction of SEF's new Sustainable Energy Finance program. The new Sustainable Energy Finance program is available to not-for-profit and governmental entities to complete energy efficiency or renewable energy projects. These are projects that reduce energy consumption from non-sustainable resources or generate energy from sustainable resources.
Sustainable Energy Fund will issue a Request for Applications for the new program on October 15, 2013. Loans or leases will be made for projects between $5,000 and $90,000 on a first-come, first-serve basis until program funds are exhausted. The deadline for Sustainable Energy Finance application submissions is 4:00 p.m. (EST) on January 15, 2014.
"Every dollar a not-for-profit spends on energy, is one less dollar they have to deliver on their mission," states Costlow. "The Sustainable Energy Finance program creates a low-cost opportunity for not-for-profits to reduce their energy consumption and return those dollars to their mission," he adds.
A sampling of project types that will be considered are:
- Solar Photovoltaic
- Anaerobic Digesters
- Energy modeling for new construction
