1. Clean Energy Group Webinar: New Jersey's Energy Resilience Bank


    from Clean Energy Group / Added

    This webinar introduced New Jersey's newly created $200 million Energy Resilience Bank (ERB). Designed as a response to SuperStorm Sandy, which knocked out electric power to over 8 million people in the region, the ERB will provide grants and loans to municipalities and small businesses, to help them install clean resilient power technologies at critical facilities such as shelters, fueling stations, and fire stations. The bank’s first solicitation will be for resilient power projects at water and wastewater treatment facilities, with solicitations for other types of critical facilities to follow. ERB director Mitch Carpen and deputy director Thomas Walker presented information about the bank and the funding opportunities it will offer. The webinar also featured Clean Energy Group president Lew Milford and project director Todd Olinsky-Paul, who discussed the bank and other resilient power efforts around the region. This webinar originally aired on 10.28.14. Slides from this webinar are available as a pdf here: http://www.cesa.org/assets/Uploads/RPP-NJ-ERB-Webinar-Slides-1.28.14.pdf
