Note: The Community Conservation Challenge (CCC) program is generally offered in the Fall. 2015 Applications will be available soon.

The Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED) is offering grants under the CCC program. Non-residential entities may apply to receive $25,000-$100,000 for community energy conservation projects. Projects must be located in Indiana and must use commercially-available technologies. The project must be visible to the public and have at least one community partner, though priority will be given to projects with support from multiple organizations. A cost share is not required but applicants are encouraged to leverage other funds in lieu of cost share.

Applicants may apply for either an Energy Efficiency/Renewable Energy grant or an Alternative Fuel Vehicles grant. Eligible projects include projects that demonstrate measurable improvements in energy efficiency or renewable energy, projects that result in a reduction in energy demand or fuel consumption, or projects that implement an energy recycling process. Eligible technologies include alternative fuel on-road vehicles, biomass, energy efficiency including HVAC, lighting, and traffic signals, combined heat and power, geothermal, solar, solar hot water, waste management and recycling, water systems, and wind.

Applications are limited to one per applicant, and necessary materials are located on the program web site.
