Eugene will receive nearly $1.5 million in federal stimulus funds to decrease carbon emissions and improve energy efficiency - a boost that is expected to create nearly 90 jobs.

The funds, awarded by the U.S. Department of Energy in response to a city grant application submitted in May, will be used to create a replenishing loan fund for downtown businesses to become more energy efficient, and grants to affordable housing projects so they can reduce energy consumption.

The funds also will be used to upgrade or convert 113 small heating, ventilation and air conditioning units in city buildings with “smart” controls, convert city buildings from steam heat to high efficiency gas systems, launch a program to encourage walking and bicycling by residents, and provide building permit rebates for homes that meet green building standards.
