Alternative Power and Energy (APE) Grant Program
See http://www.in.gov/oed/2588.htm

The Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED) is pleased to offer $879,000 through the Alternative Power and Energy Grant Program (APE). The APE grant program will provide cost share grants to Indiana’s public, non-profit, and business sectors for the purchase and installation of alternative energy systems that will help offset fossil fuel usage and create jobs.

Alternative energy systems make use of non-fossil fuel resources to produce clean, home-grown electricity and thermal energy. In a time of rising energy costs and increased energy supply volatility, it is vital to our economic future to diversify the portfolio of resources we use to produce energy.

The purpose of the grant program is to increase awareness and utilization of alternative energy resources as well as to create vocational opportunities for Hoosiers interested in renewable energy.

Alternative energy systems that utilize the following technologies/resources to produce electricity and/or thermal energy are eligible for grant funding:

1.Solar Water Hating (SWH)
a. Domestic hot water
b. Radiant heating
c. NOT swimming pools
2.Solar Electricity
3.Wind Power
4.Micro-hydro electricity
5.Biomass electricity and heating

Please read Program Guidelines for full instructions.
