Radical Energetics

Alachua County and the City of Gainesville have been awarded a Department of Energy (DOE) Communities LEAP (Local Energy Action Program) technical assistance grant which aims to facilitate sustained community-wide economic and environmental benefits primarily through DOE’s clean energy deployment work.

This is a first-of-its-kind initiative designed to help energy-overburdened communities take direct control of their clean energy future; under the Communities LEAP Pilot, DOE will provide supportive services valued at up to $16M for community-driven clean energy transitions.

The 24 communities will receive support from DOE to create community-wide action plans that reduce local air pollution, increase energy resilience, lower utility costs and energy burdens, and provide long-term jobs and economic opportunities.
