Note: This program is no longer accepting applications. The deadline for the most recent solicitation was September 25, 2009.
The Alternative Power and Energy (APE) Grant Program provides a matching fund grant to non-profit, public and commercial entities to support the purchase and installation of alternative energy systems that offset fossil fuel usage, encourage public education, and create jobs. The 2009 solicitation of this program targets projects that use solar hot water systems, solar electric systems, wind power, small-hydro electric, or biomass energy (wood waste, livestock waste, waste water treatment, algae, municipal solid waste). The Grant program is open to Indiana's public, non-profit and business entities. All entities must be registered to do business in Indiana with the Secretary of State.
An eligible entity may apply for a grant that uses one or more of the targeted alternative energy systems. A project may receive up to 50% of project costs (maximum of $100,000). Grant applications will be reviewed based on the number of jobs created, ability to start and install the energy system by May 31, 2010, energy produced per dollar spent, and the environmental benefits. Monitoring systems must be included in the project, as grantees are required to track the amount of energy generated by the alternative energy system. If monitoring system costs and a monitoring plan are not included in the project application, it will be denied.
Fifty-percent Cost-share is required. Federal funds, including federal tax credits or other grants, may not be used as cost-share.
