    MONTPELIER — Schools and municipalities around Vermont will get some help with making renewable energy and conserving energy, thanks to a new $5.8 million round of grants.

    The money for the 147 grants announced Monday is coming from federal stimulus funds, and the awards were made by the state's Clean Energy Development Fund.

    More than 100 towns and schools are getting money for energy efficiency measures such as insulating their buildings and upgrading to more efficient lighting.

    Renewable technology awards included installation of wood pellet fired boilers in East Montpelier and Fayston, and a geothermal system at the Sutton School.
