EBSCO Information Services Open EBSCO Solar Grant for 2017.....

EBSCO Information Services Open EBSCO Solar Grant for 2017.....by choff.


IPSWICH, Mass. — January 20, 2017 — EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) has renewed its commitment to helping libraries “go green” by bringing back an expanded version of its EBSCO Solar grant program for 2017. As part of the EBSCO Solar initiative, EBSCO is currently soliciting grant applications to help libraries fund solar installations. EBSCO is making two $100,000 grants available to bidders that will allow the winning libraries to reduce their utilities expenditures and install a solar array at their institution.

In August 2007, EBSCO installed a photovoltaic array on the roof of one of the buildings of its Ipswich, Massachusetts campus. At the time, the 192 solar panels made up one of the largest installations on the North Shore of Boston. Two more arrays were added to buildings on campus, and EBSCO now has more than 500 solar panels offsetting the amount of “brown power” the company buys from the grid and generating clean energy to reduce EBSCO’s environmental footprint. After seeing the benefits of “going green” on its own campus, EBSCO introduced the EBSCO Solar grant so libraries interested in adding their own solar arrays can do so...on EBSCO.

Questions will be accepted through February 28th at ebscosolar@ebsco.com

Applications are due April 28th at ebscosolar@ebsco.com

Winner will be announced online and at ALA-Annual on June 23rd.
