Fox 5 News in Las Vegas reports that Nevada will receive an additional $7 Million in Federal Stimulus to expand a home weatherization program.
Gov. Jim Gibbons announced the award Tuesday that will be administered by the state Housing Division.
Gibbons said Recovery Act grants have helped the state weatherize more than 5,300 homes owned by low-income residents.
Officials said the new grant money will be used to install in-home energy monitors, photovoltaic systems, solar water heaters, heat pumps, residential wind turbines, and perform deep-efficiency retrofits.
