City of Greensboro - Energy Saver Grant Program

December 03, 2015


Better Buildings Greensboro (BBG) Grant Program offers residents in Greensboro grants for implementing energy efficient upgrades in their home. Energy efficient upgrades made my residents must increase energy efficiency by at least 15% to qualify for grants. Once upgrades are complete, BBG will conduct an inspection of the residents home for quality standards. Following inspection, BBG will pay the contractor directly. 

For more information see program web site. If residents are interested in further energy efficient upgrades, BBG also offer low financing loans

This Program is part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Better Buildings Program. The DOE has awarded over $500 million in federal funds to more than 40 states, local governments, and organizations to administer local programs targeting a variety of building types. Combined, these local programs are expected to improve the efficiency of more than 170,000 buildings through 2013 and save up to $65 million in energy costs annually.
