 Sustainable Communities

Reducing emissions, improving energy efficiency

Our Sustainable communities program provides expertise, education, and funding to help eligible local governments improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) in their communities.

Whether you're leading the way to high-performance buildings, implementing home energy retrofit programs, or looking to make it easier for your residents to switch to electric vehicles, we want to help. We provide funding to hire staff, conduct research and training, and develop policies and programs to help your community make advancements in energy efficiency. We can also connect you with our industry partners to work together on your efficiency goals.
