Grants available for organic waste-to-energy projects
October 10, 2013
The grants will be awarded on a rolling basis through the Clean Energy Center’s Commonwealth Organics-to-Energy program and will require a 5 percent cost share for the project.
Eligible applicants include municipalities that are customers of investor-owned electric distribution companies or have municipal electric departments and have joined the Massachusetts Renewable Energy Trust.
Regional planning authorities, solid-waste districts and recycling cooperatives, as well as state agencies, also are eligible for the grants.
The grants can be used for purposes including technical assistance for developing a request for proposal; promoting public engagement in the process; and conducting pre-feasibility studies.
