How it Works
The Clean Energy Communities Leadership Round
More Opportunities to Lead
The new CEC program provides the tools and resources you need to take your community to the next level, with new High Impact Action items and increased access to grant funding. You can customize your participation in the program to best fit the needs and resources of your community and bring energy savings and economic opportunities to your community.
Earn points for every high-impact action your community completes. Once your community earns a certain number of points, it becomes eligible for larger grant amounts. You do not need to be a designated community to access point-based grant funding.
Communities that complete at least four high-impact actions are eligible to apply for grants to fund additional clean energy projects and earn the Clean Energy Communities designation.
Contact your regional coordinator to learn which actions are the best fit for your community and how to earn the most points.
