Apply for a chance to receive a $7,500 grant towards an energy efficiency project for your town!

The takeCHARGE of Your Town initiative is aimed at encouraging residents and municipalities to reduce their energy use. We have awarded over $25,000 in the past four years to cities and towns successful in winning our challenge.

This year we have transformed the takeCHARGE of Your Town initiative to invite municipalities to submit proposals that will support their efforts to develop or improve energy conservation or energy efficiency projects. Projects must demonstrate a positive effort to conserve energy that benefits the entire community. Examples of eligible projects include, but are not limited to, energy efficient upgrades to a town hall or municipal building.

We are now accepting proposals. The deadline for submission is 4:00 p.m., Friday, January 30, 2015. A successful proposal will be announced in February of 2015.

Proposal Criteria:
1. Proposals should include the following:

  • a detailed description of the project;
  • the total estimated cost of the project;
  • other partners including additional project funding;
  • how the takeCHARGE of Your Town grant will be used;
  • how our employees can provide hands-on support; and,
  • overall benefit to the community.

2. Projects need to demonstrate energy conservation or energy efficiency.

3. One grant of $7,500 will be awarded.

4. Include any additional information that will support your proposal.

5. Proposals must indicate how funding will be used during the 2015 calendar year.

6. Proposals need to be submitted by email to or by mail to your utility.
