DOE Announces $10.5 Million for Local Government Solar Energy Education



July 7, 2009 By

Up to $10.5 million will become available to local governments for solar energy adoption and workforce development, according to a U.S. Department of Energy release. Funding for the five-year awards is subject to annual appropriations.

Through the Solar America Cities program, a partnership effort with 25 large U.S. cities, DOE has developed guides, case studies, and tool kits to assist local governments in promoting solar energy. Under this new effort, DOE will partner with outreach organizations to get these tools into the hands of local government officials and stakeholders.

Applications are due by October 15, 2009, and DOE anticipates announcing selections no later than December 15, 2009. For information, see the Solar Energy Technologies Program Financial Opportunities Web page. Applications must be submitted through FedConnect.
