About Us


The Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance is a nonprofit organization with a mission to be the leading driver of activities that sustainably reduce carbon emissions in the Greater Cincinnati community.

Since its creation in 2009, the Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance has become a leader in developing and implementing energy efficiency and renewable energy programs throughout the region to residential and commercial customers.

In 2010, the Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance was one of just 25 organizations nationwide awarded a competitive Better Buildings Neighborhood Program (BBNP) grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. The grant allowed the organization to rapidly expand its offerings to local building owners and to develop an array of programs to generate energy savings.

The suite of services offered by the Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance today builds on the investments made under the BBNP grant and provides homeowners and businesses with the assistance and support they need to make their energy efficiency and renewable energy projects a reality.
