State Energy Program Grants

April 03, 2007


The Kansas Corporation Commission Energy Programs offers grants each year as part of the State Energy Program (SEP), a program of the Department of Energy. The Commission's Energy Programs goals are to accelerate the deployment of energy efficiency, renewable energy technologies, and education, and to facilitate the commercialization of emerging and underutilized energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. Grants are available to fund state agencies, counties, municipalities, universities, schools, non-profit organizations, small businesses, consultants, and others. All renewable energy technologies are eligible. Normally, individual projects -- such as residential or for-profit businesses -- cannot be funded because of limited resources unless the project would involve an innovative use of renewable resources or demonstrate energy conservation and/or efficiency. Due to significant budget cuts of the federally funded State Energy Program, the Kansas Energy Office is unable, at this time, to announce grant applications for Fiscal Year 2007. Any grants from this office will likely be administered on the basis of Requests for Proposals.
