DOE Awards Florida $3.5 Million for Energy Efficiency

DOE announced last week its award of $3.5 million for Florida's weatherization and state energy programs. Florida will receive nearly $2 million for energy efficiency improvements to an estimated 800 low-income homes. An additional $1.5 million will go towards improving the state's building energy codes and educating Floridians about energy efficiency in homes, schools, and businesses. See the DOE press release.

The funds are being provided through DOE's Weatherization Assistance Program and State Energy Program, both part of the DOE Office of Building Technology, State and Community Programs (BTS). See the BTS Web site on EREN.
