[MAY 12, 2006]  Lincoln Christian Nursery School has recently completed a new lighting upgrade funded by a grant received from the Illinois Clean Energy Foundation. The grant provided funds to the nursery school to replace all the existing lighting with energy-efficient fixtures. The Illinois Clean Energy Grant provided $15,097 toward the project. The change to energy-efficient fixtures reduced the electrical demand by 18.87 kilowatts, which will result in an annual savings of over $4,000 for the nursery school.

In the last five years, the Illinois Clean Energy Foundation has awarded $92 million in grants to 1,500 nonprofit organizations and local governments in 96 counties throughout Illinois, including $29.5 million just last year.

The Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation invests in clean energy development and land preservation efforts, working with communities and residents to improve environmental quality in Illinois. The foundation funds projects in three core program areas: improving energy efficiency, developing renewable energy resources, and preserving and enhancing natural areas and wildlife habitat throughout Illinois.
