The New York State Energy Research Authority (NYSERDA) has released a PON for the Customer-Sited Wind Turbine Incentive Program. The program, which has a total of $4.6 million, provides eligible installers with as much as 50% of the total installed cost or $400,000 to install new, grid-connected wind energy systems. To qualify, wind energy systems must meet NYSERDA's eligibility requirements and be less than 600 kW.
The program requires installers to pass on the incentive, in it's entirety to their customers; stimulating business growth while making wind energy systems more economically feasible.
Applications are due December 31st, 2011 by 5pm.
