The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), under its New York Energy $mart public benefit program, provides partial funding for projects to install, demonstrate, and operate photovoltaic (PV) systems on buildings in New York State. The PV on Buildings Incentive Program (PON 691-02) provides funding for large, grid-connected PV projects of 15kW and larger. To participate in this program, applicants must submit a proposal describing the project by October 28, 2003. NYSERDA anticipates awarding about $1.5 million of funding at each of the due dates.
Maximum NYSERDA funding per proposal is $5.00 per installed watt DC at standard test conditions or 70% of the net installed cost of the PV system, whichever is less. The maximum funding for each site is $500,000. Proposals may request funding for multiple sites; however, the maximum funding for any one proposal will not exceed $750,000. Future rounds of PV funding are dependent on availability of future funds.
To be eligible to participate in this program, the building must be (1) currently paying the System Benefits Charge (SBC) as a part of its electric service, or (2) a public building that demonstrates significant benefits and the potential for replication of the installation in the rest of New York State. Commercial, industrial, institutional, multi-family rental buildings and common areas of multi-family condominiums in New York State are eligible. Proposing teams may consist of commercial firms, government organizations, universities, or other organizations.
This program may be used in conjunction with NYSERDA's Energy $mart Loan but not with other NYSERDA rebate programs. For more information on this program and complete program instructions, visit the program Web site shown above.
