RePower has unfolded in two chapters:
In December 2009, the U.S. Department of Energy awarded grants to Kitsap County and the cities of Bainbridge Island and Bremerton. In October 2010, the Washington State University Energy Program and the Department of Commerce were awarded a BetterBuildings grant, also from the U.S. Department of Energy. These grants are funded in part by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the State Energy Program (SEP). With these grants, the County and key partners came together to implement RePower.
In July 2013, additional funding was provided by the Washington State Legislature through the Washington State Capital Budget so state residents could continue to benefit from community energy efficiency programs.
