Project Funding Partnerships

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 up to receive an email notification for GOE funding opportunities.


These renewable energy projects have been supported through GOE funding.
