Advanced Energy Program: Distributed Energy Resources Projects
|Area of Interest||Renewable Energy|
To qualify for the Advanced Energy Grant Program, projects must be located in Ohio and in the service territories of one of the four participating electric distribution companies (i.e., American Electric Power, Duke Energy, Dayton Power and Light, and First Energy). The Ohio Department of Development's Ohio Energy Office solicits applications from interested and qualified applicants to implement distributed energy resources (DER) projects, including but not limited to industrial heat recovery, combined heat and power, and landfill or biomass methane for electric generation. Projects financed through the Energy Loan Fund (ELF) will be eligible to apply for incentive grants to cover a portion of the costs of eligible projects located in the area of Ohio served by the ELF.
The maximum grant share is equal to 25 percent of project cost, while the maximum grant award is $100,000. Owners must contribute a cash equity of at least 10 percent of total project cost.
|Eligible Organizations||Livestock Producer, Commercial/Industrial, Institutional, Local Government|
|How to Apply||Interested parties should fill out an application provided on ODOD's website. Qualifying applications will be funded until all funds for this DER grant fund are awarded.|
