The grants behind this particular program do not extend to public, tribal, or non-profit owned buildings, but we still have resources and a companion program that you can use. Discover how your organization can benefit from an energy audit and a similar program that can work for you.
This is a program offered by SWAMC with support from the US Department of Energy. This is open to any non-residential building in a community where an energy auditor is conducting audits through the USDA Commercial Building Energy Audit program.
Eligibility: Eligible buildings include city, tribe, borough, or non-profit-owned buildings that are not eligible for audits under SWAMC’s USDA Commercial Building Energy Audit program. These may include educational organizations or schools, community halls, tribal buildings, senior housing, etc. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask about a building in your community.
Description: Level 1, Level 2, and custom (equipment- or system-specific such as a refrigeration system)
Cost: Though not as deeply discounted as the USDA CBEA program for businesses, this is an opportunity to set-up an energy audit without paying for the auditor’s travel costs. The building owner will negotiate a cost with the auditor.
Register: Please email email@example.com to check when or if an auditor will be in your community.
Dates: The USDA program is scheduled through 2019, with the possibility of extension. Building owners are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. There is no registration deadline. Instead, an audit trip is scheduled to a community once 2 or more businesses have signed up.
If you have a building you want audited in one of these communities or elsewhere in the Aleutians, Bristol Bay, and Kodiak region, email firstname.lastname@example.org to get your community on the list!
