The New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission (PUC) offers grant funding for renewable energy projects installed at commercial, industrial, public, non-profit, municipal or school facilities, or multi-family residences with at least three units. The minimum award is $150,000, and there is no stated maximum individual award.

Eligible forms of energy include electricity or useful thermal energy generated from wind, ocean thermal, wave, current, tidal, hydrogen derived from biomass fuels or methane gas, methane gas, biomass, hydroelectric, and solar technologies. Also eligible are geothermal ground source heat pumps, biomass, and solar thermal technologies producing useful thermal energy. Projects must utilize grant funds primarily for capital investments in new renewable energy facilities, upgrades to existing facilities to increase renewable energy production, or upgrades to existing renewable energy facilities that will qualify them as a “renewable source” for the production of renewable energy certificates (RECs) under RSA 362-F. Systems financed by third parties are generally allowed.

Projects that are eligible to apply for a rebate under any of the PUC’s renewable energy rebate programs, including the PUC’s commercial and industrial solar rebate program, are not eligible for funding under this round.
