The Butte Environmental Council has been chosen as one of a select group of community-based organizations across California to receive grants from Energy Upgrade California.
The funding will help develop and put into motion energy management outreach, awareness and educational programs for the community with an emphasis on reaching diverse and underserved populations.
BEC is partnering with GRID Alternatives, a national non-profit with regional headquarters in chico. GRID works to bring renewable energy to communities in need through it's no cost/low cost programs. That sometimes includes solar installation.
