Incentive Size and Funding SourceThe Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority seeks proposals for grants, loans, loan enhancements or power purchase incentives to help finance the cost of CHP equipment for energy-generating projects. Projects must be in the development phase and cannot already be under construction.

The program budget is $5 million. Individual awards are not a fixed amount based on size or cost and will vary based on the specific technology, efficiency and economics of the installation. However, funding will not exceed the equivalent of $450 per kilowatt of nameplate rated capacity. Financial support is intended to help project developers achieve a fair and reasonable payback and return on investment during the life of the project compared to purchasing the equivalent amount of power, fuel oil and/or gas from a utility.
