Lacey Receives Climate Commitment Act Funding

The City of Lacey (City) will receive $477,555 in Home Electrification and Appliance Rebate (HEAR) funding from the Washington State Department of Commerce to combat climate change. The funding will help establish and support local programs that provide rebates and incentives to households and small businesses to purchase and install electric equipment, lessening reliance on petroleum-based appliances.

“We are excited to receive this funding to provide financial support to our residences and small businesses,” said Vanessa Dolbee, Director of Community and Economic Development. “Our goal is to reduce net communitywide greenhouse gas emissions 45% below 2015 levels by 2030, as set in the Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan. Lacey’s largest greenhouse gas emissions come from residential use, so this funding will be a big help to electrify buildings in our city.”

The City anticipates receiving most of the funds by mid to late summer, and will directly allocate the funds to the community through a rebate program supporting housing and small business upgrades for energy-efficient projects, like heat pumps, appliances, wiring upgrades, and more.

The Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates Program is supported with funding from Washington’s Climate Commitment Act (CCA). The CCA supports Washington’s climate action efforts by putting cap-and-invest dollars to work reducing climate pollution, creating jobs, and improving public health.
