LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada is in line to get nearly $32 million in federal stimulus funds for use on energy conservation projects.
The Obama administration released the details of the funding Thursday. The state energy office received the largest grant, $9.6 million. Other grants include $7.7 million for Clark County, $5.5 million to Las Vegas and $2.1 million for Reno.
The White House says money is to be used on energy-saving projects such as upgrades to homes and businesses, transportation programs that conserve energy or renewable energy installations on government buildings.
The money comes on top of a $72 million for weatherization and energy projects in Nevada.
