SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Department of Energy says Utah will receive about $11.7 million in grants for energy conservation projects.
The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grants will go to Salt Lake City and Utah's State Energy Program, which will distribute its $9.5 million to local governments that haven't yet benefited from the federal stimulus grant program.
Salt Lake City received a direct grant of about $2.1 million.
About 2,300 cities, counties and states were eligible nationwide for the funding.
Utah's stimulus projects are expected to create nearly 100 jobs statewide.
