The U.S. Department of Energy
State Energy Program (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. For the most recent project period, the Governor’s Office of
Energy (GOE) was awarded $583,050.00. The SEP formula grant is used to fund
general GOE staff activities related to focus areas of renewable energy, energy
efficiency and programs to enhance the overall energy landscape of Nevada. In
addition to the State Energy Program Formula Grant additional funding of
$4,679,590.00 has been awarded to Nevada under the Bipartisan Infrastructure
Law to enhance abilities of existing programs through GOE and aide in
additional projects with weatherization, the Energy Efficiency and Conservation
Block Grant, outage prevention and grid resilience, and strengthening the
battery supply chain.
Periodically, GOE will have funding available to promote energy
efficiency, renewable energy, 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
