SB15-063 - Alternative Energy For Schools Grant Program

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning An Expansion Of The Wind For Schools Grant Program.

The bill takes the existing wind for schools grant program enacted in 2007 and broadens the program to include other types of electricity generated from eligible energy resources. The 2007 program allowed for grants not to exceed $5,000 to be provided to public schools and community colleges for wind generation projects, was funded by federal "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act" money, required the schools to work with the national renewable energy laboratory to establish the projects, and was overseen by the Colorado energy office. This expanded program allows for grants not to exceed $15,000 and continues to be overseen by the Colorado energy office. Because the national renewable energy laboratory no longer accepts applications for these grants, the bill also removes the requirement for a school to partner with the national renewable energy laboratory.
