Energy Funding for Northeast Central Durham
Residents in Northeast Central Durham will have more help saving household energy, thanks to two new grants received this month by Clean Energy Durham.
The Piedmont Conservation Council awarded Clean Energy Durham $12,352 to hire and train a part-time employee to help encourage Northeast Central Durham residents to sponsor and attend energy-saving workshops between now and May.
The State Energy Office awarded Clean Energy Durham $85,945 to hire and train two NCCU undergraduates to work part-time and one recent NCCU graduate fellow to work full-time in Northeast Central Durham over the next academic year. During the following year, the graduate fellow will be placed in the Cooperative Extension office in Warrenton to help bring the Clean Energy Durham model to Warren County.
Clean Energy Durham has been helping the Northeast Central Durham neighborhood save energy since early 2008. This funding will allow us to increase the variety of innovative approaches we are using to engage people in helping their neighbors save more and more money on energy.
