GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Holy Cross Energy recently announced its 2017 Think Efficiency grant winners. Holy Cross has granted $300,000 in matching funds to three local commercial entities to carry out electric efficiency projects by the end of the year.
Holy Cross received 12 requests for funds and although there were several excellent projects submitted, this grant was designed to award on a first-come, first-served basis so only the first three projects were funded.
• The Eagle County School District was given $280,000 to exchange the lighting in all of its buildings to LED lighting.
“We greatly appreciate the funding provided by the Holy Cross Energy Grant. This grant … will enable the District to expand our sustainability efforts … reduce operating costs and provide an improved educational environment for our students,” Eagle County Schools Director of Facilities Aaron Sifuentes said.
