Options for Green Energy CEPP Grant

The Community Energy Partnerships Program (CEPP) is a grant program to support community power in Ontario. Options for Green Energy received a $163,000 grant from the program that will go towards both engineering and marketing costs associated with Options for Green Energy Programs.

CEPP funding helps co-operatives to develop renewable energy generation. This grant will allow Options for Green Energy to explore more opportunities for solar installations across Ontario. Some of the costs that the CEPP grant will help to offset include resource assessment, legal services, engineering work, regulatory approvals and co-op related work.

As a non-profit Options for Green Energy aims to keep operating costs as low as possible in order to contribute the maximum amount to community wealth and to ultimately continue to develop sustainable energy projects.

Thank you to The Community Energy Partnerships Program for believing in Options for Green Energy and promoting community based energy projects across Ontario.
