This program leverages Florida’s state energy grant initiatives to identify “shovel-ready” projects that can be expeditiously implemented through available SEP funding. The goal is to provide grants for competitively-selected renewable energy and energy efficiency technology projects. The grant program is designed to stimulate capital investment in the state and promote and enhance the statewide utilization of renewable energy technologies. The top ten ranked (but unfunded) projects from FY 2008-09 grant applications from the Renewable Energy and Energy-Efficient Technology category as well as the Renewable Energy and Energy-Efficient Technology for Bioenergy category have been selected to receive funding. Before funding is awarded, the applicant must undergo eligibility and environmental review by the U.S. Department of Energy and agree to the requirements applicable under the ARRA. Only 3 of the 20 grants received funding after DOE review.
