Help the Near East receive up to $35,000 in grants from AEP Ohio and Columbia Gas to be used to help make our community spaces more energy efficient!
The Community Energy Savers (CES) program is designed to empower homeowners, renters and businesses to reduce energy usage in their community. By participating in CES, as a Near East community member, you not only have the opportunity to save energy and money in your homes and businesses, but you can also help the Near East receive financial grants up to $35,000 from AEP Ohio and Columbia Gas of Ohio. These awards will be used for a new produce refrigerator at the Ward YMCA as well as to add electricity at the 4 PACT community gardens, along with additional natural gas energy efficiency upgrades within the neighborhood.
Participate in available energy efficiency programs provided by AEP Ohio and Columbia Gas between June 1st and September 30th, 2020 in order to help us earn up to $35,000 in grants.
AEP Ohio and Columbia Gas energy efficiency programs are available to all customers with an AEP Ohio electric account or a Columbia Gas of Ohio natural gas account and are available all-year round!*
