Energy Efficiency Projects


The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, represents a Presidential priority to deploy the cheapest, cleanest, and most reliable energy technologies available.  The Program was signed into law on December 19, 2007 and is modeled after the Community Development Block Grant Program administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  TCRPC has administered EECBG funding to assist schools, villages, cities, and counties in the Peoria area to develop, promote, implement, and manage energy efficiency and conservation projects and programs designed to:

  • Reduce fossil fuel emissions;
  • Reduce the total energy use of the eligible entities; and
  • Create and retain jobs.

Through competitive grants, the EECBG Program has empowered local communities to make strategic investments to meet the nation's long-term goals for energy independence and leadership on climate change.  Projects are in the closeout phase, with a program end date of March 31st, 2012.
