The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation recently awarded a $250,000 energy grant to The Ray for its work in advancing clean energy deployment and access.
This funding will advance The Ray’s momentum as the organization continues to accelerate project delivery that builds on its proven success.
The transportation right-of-way (ROW) is under-utilized, and that public land that is perfect for renewable energy and transmission development that leapfrogs many barriers to clean energy infrastructure.
With this grant, The Ray will continue to cultivate partnerships and private sector opportunities, conduct analyses, and to launch coalitions that will support the siting of new transmission in highway and railroad ROW.
Other recipients in this grant round include:
Clean Energy Buyers Institute
National Academy of Sciences
Northern Plains Resource Council
