We were excited to learn that the District Department of the Environment (DDOE) is offering grants to help support clean energy technology in DC. District residents, businesses, nonprofits and private schools may now apply for up to $33,000 in assistance to install renewable energy systems as part of the Green Energy DC Incentive Program...

This program is the first of a series of upcoming initiatives to support clean energy technology in the city. Up to $2 million for each of the next four years will be available, beginning immediately with solar photovoltaic and wind turbine systems.

Projects must be completed within six months of award, and incentive payments are based on the amount of electricity the renewable energy system generates. DDOE expects to be able to offer incentives for solar thermal, geothermal, biomass and methane recovery systems in the next several months.

For more information and a downloadable packet of application materials, visit the Green Energy DC website or email greenenergy@dc.gov.
