SALEM — The Oregon Department of Energy recently opened the application process for its Renewable Energy Development Grant program. ODOE has approximately $1.5 million in RED Grant funds available statewide for renewable energy production systems.

Qualified systems must produce electrical energy from a renewable source such as biomass, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric, wind, landfill gas, biogas, or wave, tidal, or ocean thermal energy. Grants are capped at $250,000 per system and may not exceed 35 percent of the project cost.

This is the fifth round of RED grants offered by the agency. Previous recipients include public entities, agricultural producers, manufacturers, and nonprofit agencies.

The competitive review process is open for applications through December 15. In early 2016, applications will be reviewed for completeness before going through a competitively-scored review. ODOE expects to begin notifying potential recipients in spring 2016.

A full opportunity announcement is available at www.oregon.gov/energy. The agency encourages written questions from potential applicants by November 9. The resulting Q&A will be posted on the ODOE website by November 16.
