Rell Announces $1.7 Million Energy Grant to Westport

Gov. M. Jodi Rell announced today that Westport has been awarded a $1.7 million grant aimed at improving energy reliability at key emergency centers during times of peak demand through on-site power generating systems.

The grant was among $10.8 million in such grants awarded to southwest Connecticut communities.

The on-site generation systems would operate during emergencies and peak periods, relieving main power grids of excess demands and ultimately reduce electric costs, Rell said.

The governor’s announcement said the Westport funds will be allocated to projects at Westport EMS and the Police Department; Long Lots Elementary School, site of an emergency shelter, and the Westport Public Works garage.

Among those occupying a coveted front of the church spot was Westport First Selectman Gordon F. Joseloff, a former CBS News correspondent and Cronkite colleague.

The crowd began to gather before 1 p.m. outside the ornate Romanesque church as photographers and TV cameramen stood behind police barricades. 

This reporter spotted Joseloff in the crowd and joined him as the former Cronkite writer met old friends and colleagues and caught up on the lives of CBS alumni.
