Grants for a Church Camp looking to go Solar Powered
by Jordan Morris
(Bedford, IN USA)
Is there any type of grants out there besides tax incentives that could be used for a Church Camp (NFP)?
I'm the new manager and I'm looking to improve our energy efficiency by switching a few of our buildings to solar power.
thanks for your question Jordan.
The Indiana Alternative Power & Energy Grant Program
May provide 50% of the project cost in a renewable energy grant up to $100,00.
"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."
