UNDATED – Good news for communities looking into renewable energy options.

There’s a seed grant program offered by the Clean Energy Resource Teams, or CERTs, now accepting proposals for a variety of community-based green projects.

Some past projects funded by these seed grants include energy efficiency upgrades for city buildings, solar power for schools and farm wind power.

Michelle Vigan is CERTs’ Campaign and Metrics Coordinator. She says some of these grants have been applied locally.
