How SERC BIL Funding Opportunities Can Enhance WAP
January 31, 2024 | Recording | Slides
Would you like to include solar technologies in your weatherization program? Do you wish you could install enhanced measures that would deliver benefits to clients but might be slightly over the Savings to Investment Ratio (SIR) requirement of 1.0? Now is your opportunity, with Sustainable Energy Resources for Consumers (SERC) Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funding, to install innovative technologies and renewable energy systems. SERC grants move the Weatherization Assistance Program forward through technology and maximize energy burden reduction for low-income households. SERC BIL makes $70 million in funding available to incorporate materials, benefits, and renewable and domestic energy technologies not traditionally included in WAP.
