On July 9, 2009, the U.S. Treasury Department issued guidance for the award of cash grants by the federal government (”Grants”) in lieu of energy tax credits under Section 1603 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (”ARRA”). When ARRA was enacted in February 2009, Congress recognized that current economic conditions have reduced investors’ taxable income, and the attractiveness of the production tax credit (”PTC”) and the investment tax credit (”ITC”) as incentives for development of renewable energy projects has diminished. The goal in providing cash grants for a limited period is to spur renewable energy development, even in the absence of taxable income, and to further the goals of job creation and expansion of renewable energy sources.
