$500,000 for Industrial Energy Efficiency Projects in Savannah Announced

Category: Technology & Innovation

11/09/2009 - Congressman John Barrow (Ga.-12) announced last week that the Department of Energy (DOE) is awarding $500,000 in funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to the Savannah-based Energy Resources Division of the Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority for industrial energy efficiency projects.

“Energy efficiency is good for the environment and good for the bottom line for businesses in our area,” said Barrow.  “Businesses that save money can hire more employees, and that’s our biggest concern right now – getting folks back to work.”

“To remain globally competitive, American industry needs to be energy efficient. The funding for industrial energy efficiency technologies announced today will support a robust American industrial sector and help to usher in a clean energy economy,” said Secretary of Energy Steven Chu. “Many companies already realize that improving efficiency saves money while helping the environment.  These projects will make energy efficiency technologies more widely available, cutting energy use and reducing carbon pollution across the country.”
