Funding Available to Help Communities Save on Energy Bills

Government buildings are not always at the top of the list for upgrades. The Oklahoma Energy Efficiency Lighting Retrofit Program is a funding opportunity through the Oklahoma Department of Commerce which can provide local governments and state agencies with funds to retrofit lighting for both interior and exterior lighting in public buildings, bringing savings on energy costs and future maintenance.

Commerce is issuing a Request for Application (RFA) to seek qualified Oklahoma local governments and state agencies who wish to apply for these funds to retrofit both interior and exterior lighting at public buildings.

Who qualifies?
Oklahoma local governments and state agencies

When is the application period?
Applications will be accepted beginning July 13, 2022, through close of business August 31, 2022.

What is the purpose of the funding?
The Oklahoma Energy Efficiency Lighting Retrofit Program funds retrofit lighting in public buildings for the purpose of energy efficiency, energy and maintenance savings, better optical control for more uniform lighting, and improved color rendering, and to promote economic development and job creation while using project savings to create community vitality.

How does a community or agency apply?
To respond to this RFA, visit the OKGrants portal. First, apply for registration within OKGrants, following the instructions on the home page. Once log-in credentials are received, visit “Available Opportunities” to search for the SEP Energy Efficiency Lighting Retrofit Program Grant.
