RESOLUTION NO. 100411

 

Authorizing acceptance of a $20,000,000.00 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy through the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program as established in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

 

WHEREAS, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) , passed by Congress and signed by the President on February 17, 2009, established the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE); and

 

WHEREAS, as part of the EECBG Program, DOE solicited competitive proposals from local and state governments for Retrofit Ramp-up grants to implement energy efficiency retrofits of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings to create jobs, reduce energy use, reduce fossil fuel emissions (including greenhouse gas emissions), and lower utility bills; and 

 

WHEREAS, the City of Kansas City, Missouri (the City) submitted an application for a Ramp-up Retrofit grant to implement the Energy Works KC program to assist building owners in making energy efficiency improvements to their homes and businesses and to transform the energy efficiency retrofit market in the greater Kansas City area; and

 

WHEREAS, the Energy Works KC grant application was developed in partnership with many local partners, including the Mid-American Regional Council (MARC), the Metropolitan Energy Center (MEC), Kansas City Power & Light (KCPL), Missouri Gas Energy (MGE), the Green Impact Zone and six neighborhoods in Kansas City (Winnwood, Central Industrial District, Washington Wheatley, Westside, Ruskin Heights, and Eastwood Hills), local financial institutions, and other local stakeholders; and

 

WHEREAS, the City was one of 25 entities nationwide selected by DOE to be a recipient of a Retrofit Ramp-up grant and the City has subsequently negotiated a revised scope of work consistent with a grant award in the amount of $20,000,000.00 in order to implement the Energy Works KC program over a three-year project period; and

 

WHEREAS, the City expects to receive an offer of an award of $20,000,000.00 in EECBG Retrofit Ramp-up grant funding from DOE on or about June 1, 2010; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the City Manager or his designee, on behalf of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, is authorized to accept a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy in the amount of $20,000,000.00 pursuant to the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to implement the Energy Works KC program. A copy of the Grant Agreement is on file in the Office of Environmental Quality and is incorporated herein by reference.
