Thousands available in funding for clean diesel projects in Connecticut

(WTNH)–Thousands of dollars in federal funding are now available for clean diesel projects in Connecticut.

According to the state’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, $183,000 in funding will go to towns, cities, businesses and organizations who want to replace large, older diesel engines with electric or newer, cleaner-burning engines.

The new technology can reduce air pollution by as much as 80 percent.

Grant applications are due by November 14.
