AUGUSTA, Maine — Four community colleges in Maine are receiving $1.3 million in federal stimulus grants in support of programs that focus on renewable energy and energy efficiency.

The grants are being awarded to Northern Maine Community College in Presque Isle, Eastern Maine Community College in Bangor, Kennebec Community College in Augusta and Southern Maine Community College in South Portland.

They are being awarded through Efficiency Maine, a Maine Public Utilities Commission program.

PUC Chairwoman Sharon Reishus says the grants will give students skills when they enter the work force that meet the needs of the growing “green economy.”
