Bentley awards grant to help business upgrade lighting
MONTGOMERY – Gov. Robert Bentley awarded a $5,000 grant to help a farm business in Marshall County reduce energy consumption and save money.

The grant will help Maze Farms Inc. retrofit the current lighting system in its five poultry houses. The upgrade will include compact fluorescent bulbs, dimming controls and other enhancements to help the business reduce its utility bill.

The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs is administering the grant from funds made available by the U.S. Department of Energy. In addition to grants for energy conservation, ADECA administers an array programs in law enforcement and traffic safety, economic development, workforce development, water resources and recreation development.

Bentley notified Dennis Maze that the grant had been approved.
