seeking grant to install 1.5mw solar electric system
by Jerry Cheesman
I am seeking information on the requirements to qualify for a grant to install either photo-voltaic panels or thin-film solar electric. The permits are in place and we are seeking a purchase power agreement with Pacific Gas and Electric Company. We have reasonable access to the grid and are near a sub-station which has an additional 3 MW capacity to accept the produced power. We are seeking to begin installation ASAP and will achieve greater than 5% completion by December 31, 2010.
This is for a commercial building we assume, not for a private dwelling or solar plant.
