Pennsylvania clears almost USD 10m in clean energy funding
Pennsylvania's Commonwealth Financing Authority has approved USD 9.9 million (EUR 8.7m) in funding for seven alternative and clean energy projects in the state, including an anaerobic digester in Lancaster County.
The funding consists of USD 8.12 million in grants and USD 1.74 million in loans and comes from the state's Alternative and Clean Energy programme, according to an announcement on Thursday by the Pennsylvania governor's office. It will support three alternative energy production projects, two high performance building projects and two compressed natural gas projects. The loans and grants provided are expected to result in almost USD 93 million in additional economic investments, according to the statement.
The Borough of Columbia in Lancaster County will get a loan of USD 1.45 million and a grant of USD 300,000 to install an anaerobic digester at its wastewater treatment plant. The overall cost of the project is estimated at USD 3.5 million.
