Grant funding assistance is available to Ohio manufacturers who are investigating energy-efficiency projects in 2018 through the state’s Energy Efficiency Program for Manufacturers.
The grants can be used to identify energy efficiency recommendations or take a deep dive on specific equipment’s operation and energy impact. Past grant recipients have conducted an energy assessment of their entire plant, while others have focused on improving operations of key energy-intensive equipment, like air compressors, chillers or furnaces.
The state is offering a $1-for-$1 match in funds, up to $15,000 per manufacturing facility. Utility energy study funds are eligible for the manufacturers’ cost share.
The grant funding is limited, and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please contact John Seryak of Go Sustainable Energy, OMA’s energy engineering consultant, for more information and to apply for funding. 1/5/2018
