The Washington State Department of Commerce is preparing to make $9.7 million of total funding available under the Clean Energy Fund Building Electrification grant program. The program will award funding to eligible projects that advance all-electric buildings by deploying smart technologies to demonstrate grid-interactive efficient buildings, or installing high-efficiency electric equipment to reduce the use of fossil equipment. Eligible applicants include for-profit companies, non-profit organizations, state and local governments, Tribal governments, retail electric utilities, and individual owners of multifamily residential or commercial buildings. Applicants are eligible for reduced match requirements based on the percent of total project costs dedicated to reducing energy burdens and meaningfully engaging priority communities, and providing workforce development and partnership opportunities.
Commerce anticipates opening the grant for applications in October 2022.
Please visit the Clean Energy Fund Building Electrification website for more information on the program and announcements on the release of the solicitation.
