$200,000 in Grants for Distributed and Renewable Energy
The Ohio Department of Development’s (ODOD) Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE) is offering grants for the installation of new distributed energy resources (DER) projects and non-residential renewable-energy projects. Project equipment may not be ordered, purchased, or installed prior to the execution of a grant agreement with the ODOD. Distributed energy resources (DER) projects are defined in the current solicitation as modular technologies that generate and deliver electricity to customers at or near the point of use and include systems that use natural gas and propane, landfill gas, or biomass methane. Eligible applications include industrial heat recovery and combined heat and power (CHP), microturbines, and clean-burning reciprocating engines. The maximum grant award is $100,000 or 25% of the project’s cost, whichever is less. In addition, a minimum equity investment of 10% of the project cost is also required. Under the Non-Residential Renewable Energy program solicitation, grants are available for wind energy systems, photovoltaic (PV) systems and solar thermal systems. Projects using third-party ownership structures containing an Energy Purchaser, Third-Party Owner, and a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) are eligible to receive incentives. Non-residential wind-energy systems – both third-party and traditional – are eligible for a grant of $2.50 per watt. Traditional wind energy systems must have a power output of 10 kilowatts AC (kW-AC) at the average wind speed for the site. The maximum grant award for a traditional wind-energy system is the lesser of $150,000 or 50% of the project’s cost. Third-party wind energy systems must have a power output of 50 kW-AC at the average wind speed for the site. The maximum grant award for third-party systems is the lesser of $200,000 or 50% of the project cost. Non-residential solar-thermal systems are eligible for a grant of $30 per kilo-Btu per day. The minimum system size is 200 kilo-Btu per day for traditional systems and 500 kilo-Btu per day for third-party systems. The maximum grant award is the lesser of 50% of the project cost, or $150,000 for a traditional solar-thermal system and $200,000 for a third-party owned system. All non-residential PV systems are eligible for a grant of $3.50 per watt (DC). The minimum system size is 10 kW (DC) for traditional systems and 50 kW (DC) for third-party systems. The maximum grant award for PV systems is the lesser of 50% of project costs, or $150,000 for traditional systems and $200,000 for third-party systems. Wind and PV systems must be grid connected; stand-alone systems are not eligible.
