dCHPP (CHP Policies and incentives database)

The dCHPP (CHP Policies and incentives database) is an online database that allows users to search for CHP policies and incentives by state or at the federal level. dCHPP has two primary purposes:

  • Policy makers and policy advocates can find useful information on significant state/federal policies and financial incentives affecting CHP.
  • CHP project developers and others can easily find information about financial incentives and state/federal policies that influence project development.

The glossary (PDF) (2 pp, 53K) contains definitions for the policy and incentive types included in dCHPP.

Please select one or both of the search filters to return your desired results. To select more than one option within a search filter (e.g., New York and Texas in the Search by State filter), hold down the Control key on your keyboard while selecting the options. You can then sort the results by selecting the desired column heading. To start over, select "Reset Filters."
