SOLAR INCENTIVES

I wanted to post some information to help our tribal members either reduce their generator costs or their electricity costs by looking into solar. For many of our tribal members living up on the mountain, electricity isn't always an option the conventional way. By looking into some of these solar incentives we may be able to get some of the tribal homes off of their generators and cutting the gas costs. The website below has some information that may be worth looking into.

DSIRE is a comprehensive source of information on state, local, utility, and federal incentives and policies that promote renewable energy and energy efficiency. Established in 1995 and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, DSIRE is an ongoing project of the N.C. Solar Center and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council.

Summary:
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Tribal Energy Program promotes tribal energy sufficiency, economic growth and employment on tribal lands through the development of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. The program provides financial assistance, technical assistance, education and training to tribes for the evaluation and development of renewable energy resources and energy efficiency measures.

DOE's Tribal Energy Program consists of program management through DOE headquarters, program implementation and project management through DOE's field offices, and technical support through DOE laboratories. Program management for the Tribal Energy Program is carried out by DOE's Weatherization and Intergovernmental Program, which provides programmatic direction and funding to DOE field offices for program implementation. DOE's field offices, specifically the Golden Field Office, issue solicitations and manage resulting projects.

Program funding is awarded through a competitive process. Click here to view current program funding opportunities.
