The Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED) is pleased to offer $150,000 through the Indiana Solar Thermal (IST) grant program. The IST grant program will provide cost share grants to Indiana’s public, non-profit, and business sectors for the purchase and installation of solar water heating systems that will help offset fossil fuel usage and create jobs. Solar energy systems make use of non-fossil fuel resources to produce clean, home-grown thermal energy for heating water. 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 this grant program is to increase awareness and utilization of solar thermal energy resources as well as to create vocational opportunities for Hoosiers interested in renewable energy. Program data will be used to gather additional information on the economic viability of solar thermal energy in Indiana.
The applilcation period for this program begins August 1, 2010. Applications must be submitted by 5:00pm EDT September 1, 2010.
