KCC accepts applications for Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program

The Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) has been awarded a $1.9 million Block Grant from the Department of Energy (DOE). The grant is part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). Under the Program, States may make subawards to local governments (counties and cities) who did not directly receive federal grants under the Program.

The KCC intends to support with this Program through subgrants to local governments to help fund projects to replace traffic signals and/or street lighting with energy efficient lighting technology with a particular focus to rural, underserved and disadvantaged communities in Kansas.

Many publicly owned facilities in Kansas’ rural, underserved or disadvantaged communities are aging and inefficient, incurring high costs for energy and maintenance. Replacement of street lights and traffic signals with more energy efficient lighting can significantly cut energy use and maintenance costs while improving light quality and output. The KCC will manage and administer activities in order to achieve project goals.
