The governor's office announced Friday that four companies have been awarded more than $226,000 in federal stimulus money to make energy-efficiency upgrades to their industrial sites in Kentucky.
The companies receiving grants include 3M in Cynthiana ($86,689), AGC Automotive Americas in Elizabethtown ($83,990), Hausner Hard-Chrome in Owensboro ($35,377) and General Motors in Bowling Green ($20,900).
3M plans to use the money to change its air-handling units and install an advanced energy-monitoring system, according to a statement. The others will use the money for lighting projects.
The recipients are required to contribute at least half of the cost of the projects.
