Wisconsin qualifies for federal energy grants

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Wisconsin was among 13 states to win competitive federal energy grants. The Badger State is receiving $47,000. Most of it will improve heating-and-cooling systems for public housing, plus local-and-state government buildings.

About $75,000 of the grant will seek to remove bureaucratic and other barriers to making industries more energy-efficient. One of those supporting the state's grant request was La Crosse House Democrat Ron Kind. He says it will provide a "forward-looking approach" to promote energy efficiency, and help communities cut down on wasted energy.
