Berea has received a $66,000 grant from the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council for 2019. In 2018, Berea received a $68,000 NOPEC grant. The grants are through the NOPEC Energized Community Grant funds. Service Director Paul Anzalone said the City was able to rollover the 2018 funds to this year and will use the combined total of $134,000 to upgrade the HVAC system at the Fire Station. “It will enable us to better insulate the building for higher efficiency and savings in our gas and electric bills,” he said.
