Governments Offer All Kinds Of Solar Energy Grants

Solar energy grants serve a good purpose. The more renewable energy appliances you and I install, the better it is for the planet.

Many governments now recognize that by necessity. Think economic crisis pushing along renewables and energy-efficiency.

This is a time where a lot of people stand to benefit from grants and incentives... If you know where to look.

Here you'll find information on grants and incentives, Tips on grants and saving money and of course access to the Database Of US Renewable Energy Incentives.

  • The renewable energy industry sector is soaring with the swell building up under President Obama's renewable energy tidal wave. Tens of US$ Billions are being spent.

    Offering such solar energy grants is essential policy, helping to reduce effects of global warming and our dependency on expensive and polluting fossil fuels. Of course it's also a perfect vehicle for healing the global economy.

    Enabling you to live in your home or drive your car, using the cheapest, most energy-efficient, environment-friendly energy technologies.

    And if you are one of those looking at renewable energy because of a heavy mortgage, this this might assist.

    Some private corporations have chosen to use their money to stimulate this process. Google.org for example allocated $10 million in 2007, for investments in companies and projects that support alternative transportation, meaning those reducing the use of fossil fuels and emissions.

    And Big Oil itself recognizes the Great 21 Century Renewable Energy Shift. Take Shell for example. Talking about transition from Scramble to Blueprint scenarios.

    In looking for these energy grants, knowing some basics about what is solar energy and what is the advantage of renewable energy may assist.

    Direct renewable energy grants, rebates, tax incentives and carbon emission trading can make for a powerful mix. And you may find significant benefits extended to you in building an energy-efficient home or retrofitting it. Or buying an alternative fuel car or convert your car to electric or hydrogen gas. Or make your home, business or farm energy efficient and explore wind turbines and solar panels. Renewable energy researchers also benefit from research grants.

    It would be an impossible task to list them all globally as initiatives are added regularly and are spread over local, state, provincial and national governments. Also, policies on kinds of renewable energy sources that may benefit from grants change from time to to time.

    Rising global renewable, including solar power energy, incentives will offer some fantastic opportunities to you. Stay tuned.

    Let's have a look.

    Solar Energy Grants—USA

    In the USA the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is probable your best first port of call. EERE is engaged in many strategies to increase the use of renewable energy and improve the required technology. Here is its State-based renewable energy grant database

    The EERE's efforts are significant. In 2004 EERE awarded $506 Million in financial assistance. Today this figure is MUCH bigger. It is not involved in individual incentives but you can access a comprehensive US solar grants federal database here, called the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE) .

    For direct grants to you, and for other incentives you should contact your local government authority first. The trail will lead to grants and rebates tailored to your solar water heating system, or other form of renewable energy appliance.

    ...or not. In which case you will immediately enroll in your local course "how to become an effective environmental lobbyist 101. Also, there is good general information available on all kinds of solar energy grants and tax incentives.

    In addition, you may also be interested also in this database of energy efficiency programs that can save you money.

    If you still do not have the information you want after searching those databases, post your question on our Living Database.

    Geothermal Heating And Cooling Attracts Great Incentives Too

    Some people think geothermal energy could not be eligible for solar energy grants because this is energy from the Earth! Well, where does the Earth's warmth come from? Case closed...

    It's not strictly solar (although the sun is still the source of this geo-warmth) but VERY renewable and clean energy... A geothermal heat pump can save you a lot of energy dollars. And yes, you can apply it to an individual residence. Just look at these tax incentives.

    Want to know more? Install one yourself? You might like to download this publication on the whys, hows and what-fors of installing a geothermal heat pump. I warn you though - it's not THAT easy. But the benefits can be great. Silent, free energy from the Earth - sunshine or rain, wind or not.

    The US's EPA says it's the most energy-efficient, environmentally clean, and most cost-effective space conditioning system available.

    Solar energy grants, the art is to keep seeing the wood for the trees...

    Solar energy grants—Australia

    The Australian Federal government’s Office of Renewable Energy Regulator (ORER) administers the Mandatory Renewable Energy Target (MRET). Don’t you love these intergalactic acronyms?

    It issues Renewable Energy Certificates (REC) to renewable energy power stations, some solar water heater installations, and small photovoltaic, wind or mini hydro-electric system installations.

    These REC’s can be traded like shares or money.

    Don’t dismiss them as mere play money!

    For a two panel solar hot water system, the REC currently equals about AUS$1,000, dependent on the geographical location of the water heater.

    Three further Australian Departments that offer information on solar energy grants and assistance for research or development projects or new renewable energy power stations are

    • Australian Greenhouse Office
    • Department of Environment and Heritage
    • Department of Industry, Tourism and Resources

    Australian State and Territory governments offer more direct incentives, including to

    • Households
    • Community groups
    • Schools
    • Business
    • Research and development organisations
    • Local government, and
    • State Government agencies

    For example, the Western Australian Sustainability Energy Development Office lets you claim a AUS$500 rebate for natural gas-boosted solar water heaters. And AUS$700 for bottled LP gas-boosted solar water heaters, where used in areas without reticulated gas.

    It also has a Remote Area Power Supply Program, which provides rebates for the installation of renewable energy power systems used instead of diesel generation by householders in off-grid areas of Western Australia.

    It provides rebates of 55% of the capital cost of eligible equipment and services with a maximum of AUS$550,000.

    Its Photovoltaic Rebate Program provides rebates for installation of both grid-connected and off-grid photovoltaic power systems. It's worth about $8,000!

    All State and Territory governments have their equivalent programs and you should seek these out.

    At this time we are not aware of a co-ordinated national database of State solar energy grants.

    UK solar energy grants

    By comparison £400 cashback grants are paid in the UK’s England and Wales for homeowners to fit solar water heating.

    In Northern Ireland similar grants are £900 per home with Scotland paying 30% of the cost of a solar water heating system.

    These grants are valid up to March 2006 after which some hold an expectation that they may be replaced by tough energy efficiency standards for homes.

    Incentives for greater implementation of solar energy through grants are important

    Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev was responsible for one of the greatest political transitions in recent history. He has also called for the world's biggest industrialized nations to set up a 50 billion dollar (44 billion euro) fund to support solar power, warning that oil or nuclear energy were not viable energy sources for the future. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair likewise has called for urgent action.

    Most of all it’s up to you and me. Countries are not meeting their Kyoto Protocol goals and some never accepted them. An alternative block of Asian-Pacific countries has adopted no enforceable emission reduction targets.

    Yes, through implementing renewable energy where we can—while picking up solar energy grants along the way-we can make a difference.

    But the biggest difference may be achieved through behaving responsibly towards others and towards the environment.

    Learning to behave like that comes through acceptance of limits, dependence and vulnerability as just part of life. Much of this has been unlearned as we have become more and more removed from the natural processes of life.

    Reconnect, and engage positively with those aspects of life and seek to assist those who face them in a concentrated form. Like in disability. That’s the way to a sustainable world.

    I grant you!

    Technology is there to assist your life and mine. Not to shape our lives for us.
