Energy Empowers, the clean energy blog from U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), redesigned its website.

The site focuses on projects sponsored by DOE and supported by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The blog tells the stories of people and businesses working in the clean energy sector, from a battery manufacturer in Menomonee Falls, Wis., to residential electricity customers in Ohio.

The site includes stories that are searchable by state, energy area or by specific Recovery Act grants and tax credits. Energy Empowers is also on Facebook at
