Great Lakes Power Challenge

The Great Lakes Protection Fund is pleased to announce a request for proposals for its "Great Lakes Power Challenge."

Up to two million dollars in funding is available to support business plans that couple the restoration and protection of Great Lakes ecosystem health with market opportunities created by the deregulation of retail electricity markets.  The Fund hopes to support one or more innovative business strategies that use ecosystem health as a criterion for designing, marketing and providing a new generation of power products and services.  We hope that such plans will provide consumers scientifically sound, objective ways to select electric power based on the impacts on the health of the Great Lakes ecosystem.

Brief concept papers will be accepted until December 1, 1997.  Awards will be made in the summer of 1998.

For a full copy of the request for proposals, and other information, please see:


or contact our offices.

The Fund encourages creative, collaborative, multi-organization projects.  This request is entirely separate from the regulatory and policy initiatives underway at the state and national levels.  The Fund does not support advocacy, lobbying or litigation.

Feel free to contact the Fund with questions.
