The City of Taylorville got a substantial grant last week from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation for the installation of Solar Photovoltaic lights at the airport. Taylorville Mayor Greg Brotherton says it’ll be a win-win situation for the city:
The grant was for nearly 53,000. The city is still waiting for a 30,000 rebate from the Department of Commerce and Economic opportunity that would also help fund the project. If the rebate is received and added to the grant, about 3 quarters of the necessary money for the project will be secure.
