STATEHOUSE - State Rep. Dick Dodge (R-Pleasant Lake) congratulated Darling Street Apartments and Trine University today in qualifying for Indiana's Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program.


Darling Street Apartments will receive $29,599.50 and Trine University will receive $100,000 in grant funding.


The purpose of the Indiana EECBG Program is to assist eligible entities in creating and implementing strategies to reduce fossil fuel emissions in a manner that will reduce the total energy use of the eligible entities, increase energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption and reduce energy costs through efficiency improvements.


"During tough economic times, everyone is searching for solutions-solutions to make everything work more efficiently while producing cost-savings," said Rep. Dodge. "What these organizations plan to do with their well-deserved grant money will certainly work toward both of those goals. I was proud to hear that these two projects received one of the biggest grants available-it was well-deserved and I know they will appreciate it."


EECBG program is funded through the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) and administered in Indiana by the Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED).
