Project Funding Partnerships

The U.S. Department of Energy SEP Formula Grant provides funding and technical assistance to states, territories, and the District of Columbia to enhance energy security, advance state-led energy initiatives, and maximize the benefits of decreasing energy waste.

Funding for the program is allocated to states according to a formula written into the federal formula grant regulations. In addition, SEP formula grant regulations require that states provide a 20% match in funds for each year of the project period. For the most recent project period, the Governor’s Office of Energy (GOE) was awarded $455,460.  The SEP formula grant is used to fund general GOE staff activities related to focus areas of renewable energy, energy efficiency and electric vehicles.

Periodically, GOE will have funding available to promote energy efficiency, renewable energy, electric vehicles and other energy programs and projects throughout Nevada. Funding opportunities will be announced through a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). If you are interested, you can sign up to receive an email notification for GEO funding opportunities. 

These renewable energy projects have been supported through GEO funding provided by GOE.
