Energy Environmental Corporation (EEC) is a Denver-based integrated renewable energy systems company providing grants to low income homeowners and local non-profits for energy efficiency improvements to building envelope, heating, cooling, and hot water systems. These can include insulation and air sealing and/or installation of renewable energy systems such as solar hot water, geothermal heat pumps, or residential wind systems. An energy audit will determine the appropriate improvements to be funded. The grants are funded with 5% of the company's annual revenue.

Two types of grants are available through the program: matching grants and full grants. Matching grants allow nonprofits to improve their energy efficiency with minimal investments. EEC’s contribution is determined by calculating the retail price of the system/services and deducting federal and state rebate amounts. EEC will contribute 50% of the remaining amount. Matching funds are expected, but there may be exceptions where more funding is provided based on the specific project and determined by EEC. To receive a matching grant, eligible organizations must be registered 501(c)(3) nonprofits and environmentally benefit from the aid. Organizations with international project locations may apply. EEC prefers to work with any organization which has the desire to lower their carbon footprint for the greater good of the community.

With full grants, EEC donates 100% of the post-rebate cost of the systems and/or services to qualified low income households. To receive a full grant, homeowners must qualify for the LEAP program as outlined through Energy Outreach Colorado, be a legal resident of the United States and Colorado, and pay utility bills to an energy company or as part of rent.

Applications for the next grant cycle are due July 30, 2009.
