Take NV Energy’s money

Northern Nevada nonprofits looking to improve their energy efficiency can apply for a grant offered through NV Energy. Individual projects can get up to $5,000. For grants between $5,000 and $10,000, agencies are required to make a 50 percent matching investment.

Projects that may qualify include replacing lighting systems and controls, upgrading insulation and appliances and improving heating and cooling systems.

Application letters are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and are due by Aug. 15. The projects have to be finished by Nov. 15.
