Commissioner Jesse Gonzalez said private business owners can take advantage of this program to help their businesses become energy efficient.

“I think that we are pushing clean energy projects it’s a win-win in our community right now and even there might be an individual right now that needs a little bit of help that needs funding or a company or a business, this is the perfect example,” said Commissioner Gonzalez.

Some examples can include businesses that deal with electricity, water heating, solar panels, wind turbines and more.

You may qualify if own a commercial property such as private school, medical facility or church.

Also, if you own an industrial property such as a privately owned agricultural related property and you might qualify if you own an apartment complex but not if you are an individual homeowner.
