Published: July 19,2010
ACROSS MISSISSIPPI — The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) recently awarded 30 grants during the second – and final – round of the Mississippi Job Protection through Energy Economic Development Program.
Part of the State Energy Program (SEP) funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), the Job Protection Program allocated $5.31 million to eligible companies in this round.
Under the Job Protection Program, eligible companies can install energy-efficient upgrades and retrofits, such as lighting, HVAC, industrial systems and other items, yielding significant energy and cost savings.
These companies are expected to see a combined estimated annual energy savings of nearly $3.5 million.
Through ARRA, the SEP provides $40.4 million to Mississippi for programs related to energy- efficient buildings, market transformation and technology deployment and job protection through energy economic development. In Mississippi, the SEP provides assistance to both public and private entities to move the state toward greater energy efficiency, energy independence and sustainability while creating and preserving jobs in the state.
