DOE announces $27M in grants to cut costs, improve efficiency of solar installations
Department of Energy - Jun 1
The DOE has made $27 million in funding available for initiatives aimed at reducing the non-hardware costs of solar power projects and improving the bureaucratic efficiency of permitting for such projects. The agency will grant up to $12.5 million for the Rooftop Solar Challenge, which encourages local and regional government teams to compete for funds to improve their solar permitting processes, increase access to financing for solar projects, update planning and zoning codes, and improve interconnection and net metering standards.
