FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
STOW – Town Administrator Denise Dembkoski is pleased to announce that the Town of Stow has received $500,000 in grant funding from the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) Green Communities Division for the Randall Library building decarbonization renovation project.
The $500,000 in funds will be used to aid the Randall Library renovation project and transform the building into a fossil-free space.
The renovation will include the installation of an all-electric HVAC system to support both the addition and the renovation of the existing building, with the aim to lower the Town’s overall greenhouse gas emissions.
DOER staff selected grant applications to fund based on a number of factors, including energy impacts, emissions reductions, utility incentives, reasonable budget, efficacy of measures in terms of energy savings per DOER investment, and previous grant awards. DOER also looked favorably on projects that exhibit innovation and consistency with the Commonwealth’s stated clean energy priorities.
“We are very grateful for this funding, which will help us to meet our goal to make the Randall Library a space that is free from fossil-fuels,” said Town Administrator Dembkoski. “This renovation works alongside the Town’s actions to meet our greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets, and we look forward to continuing our commitment to a sustainable future.”
