Public School Energy Equity Program

Our Public-School Energy Equity Program aims to provide essential support to underserved public schools in Rhode Island by implementing energy-saving measures that improve building occupants' health, safety, and comfort while also reducing energy costs. This will contribute to the state's Act on Climate law, which mandates economy-wide greenhouse gas reduction targets leading to net-zero emissions by 2050.

We have developed the following accelerator tools to support the Public School Energy Equity Program effectively. The links below offer information on the accelerator's objectives, eligible entities, and the application process:
