Department of Energy Awards $6.56 Million to WinnCompanies

WinnCompanies announced it has been awarded a $6.56 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to work with Massachusetts’ housing and energy agencies on developing state-of-the-art clean technologies to dramatically improve energy efficiency in existing public and private apartment communities. 

“Thanks to this DOE initiative, historically underserved communities will have a unique opportunity to become testing grounds for innovation and carbon reductions through a variety of new distributed energy resources (DERs),” said Darien Crimmin, vice president of Energy & Sustainability for WinnCompanies. “This project will focus on affordable and mixed-income housing communities to ensure that connected, resilient, clean energy technologies are accessible and designed to serve all of society.”
