  • On 22nd November 2022, Representative Norma J. Torres (CA-35) announced that communities and counties in the Inland Empire would receive more than $2.75 million in renewable energy awards. 
  • The funding comes from the Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program. EEBG supports the development of clean energy projects across the country to reduce pollution, lower energy costs for families, and keep the United States on track. 

$2.75 Million Grant From Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program

EEBG program aims to meet President Barack Obama’s commitment to cut greenhouse gas emissions by half by 2030. 

A total of $550 million in EECBG awards are being granted nationally due to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which Rep. Torres championed.

The EECBG Program chose the following cities and counties to receive grants:

  • Pomona City: $188,070
  • Fontana City: $230,640
  • Montclair City: $76,320
  • Chino City: $147,470
  • Ontario City: $218,330
  • Rialto City: $151,580
  • $393,590 in San Bernardino County
  • $1,344,700 in Los Angeles County

Bipartisan Infrastructure Act: Supporting Energy Sector Around the States

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Act, which invests more than $65 billion in clean energy transmission, will help establish 60 new DOE (Department of Energy) initiatives over the next five years. It will include 16 demonstration and 32 deployment projects and boosts financing for 12 current Research, Development, Demonstration, and Deployment (RDD&D) programs.

“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is supercharging America’s clean energy future. With these latest investments, we’re delivering on our commitment to lower costs, cut pollution, and build a healthier future for people in the Inland Empire,” said Congresswoman Torres. “With the EECBG Program, local governments, as well as Tribal communities, in California are one step closer to reaching their clean energy and energy efficiency goals. I look forward to working with local officials to deliver on these game-changing projects.”

DOE looks forward to working with states, communities, and industry to rebuild the nation’s outdated energy infrastructure and propel the US economy toward a clean energy, reduced carbon emissions future.
