Grants ranging from $1,000 to $90,000 to San Miguel County, Colorado non-profits, businesses, government entities and individuals for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and greenhouse gas reduction. Eligible projects may decrease energy consumption, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote energy efficient and renewable energy systems, promote environmental and economic sustainability, and increase public awareness of energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction.

Proposals will be judged on the following criteria:

-Environmental benefit: All projects must provide measurable greenhouse gas emission reductions (using standard EPA protocols) and have low to negligible impact on surrounding natural resources.

-Cost effectiveness: Projects should be financially sustainable. (Projects with matching funds and/or private investment are highly encouraged.)

-Public Visibility and Education: Projects that increase public awareness on greenhouse gases and energy related issues are encouraged. Public projects must be willing to visibly promote the Green Projects Grant Program through posting information, program logo, certificate, etc.

-Market influence and Leverage: Projects should help influence the market share of energy efficient and renewable energy technologies.

-Community assistance: Projects that benefit those who are least able to afford high energy costs (seniors, low income) are encouraged.

-Innovation and/or Unique Opportunity: Projects should attempt to use the most innovative designs available. Projects should also take advantage of local resources and circumstantial opportunities as available.

-Technology: Projects can support proven technologies and designs or new technology that is suitable for the region.

Priority will be given to projects addressing energy efficiency over renewable energy systems. Recipients are encouraged to leverage other funding sources or energy rebates.
