Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced that a Rural Energy for America Program Grant (REAP) of $140,360 has been awarded to Alliance Recycling Center, Inc. from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Rural Development agency.

“Businesses and manufacturers in Northwest Ohio are leading the way when it comes to the innovative use of solar energy,” Brown said. “These new resources will help the Alliance Recycling Center to make the necessary updates to maintain modern, energy-efficient operations.”
