Infrastructure Grant Program

Th ECU Infrastructure Grant Program is targeted for commercial businesses that are rehabilitating existing buildings in the Tax Increment Financing District of the City of Easley. 

Goal:  It is the policy of Easley Combined Utilities to require commercial customers to pay the cost of installation and/or replacement of the electric, water, and sewer infrastructure from existing ECU utility facilities to the commercial structure being served.  It is the goal and intent of this program that grant proceeds be used to defray the cost of these expenses. 

Grant proceeds cannot be used to pay any capital contribution charges, utility deposits, or account activation fees.
