  • 1. Solar in the Stimulus: An Analysis of State Energy Program Spending American Solar Energy Society: Sizing Up gy y g p State Programs May 20, 2010 Ty Gorman N.C. N C Solar Center / DSIRE
  • 2. DSIRE Overview O i – Created in 1995 by the NC Solar Center – Funded by U.S. DOE (EERE), administered by NREL – ~2,392 RE & EE financial incentives & regulatory policies – Federal, State, Local, Utility – ~ 250,000 unique visitors/month www.dsireusa.org www dsireusa org
  • 3. Introduction I t d ti • Impetus for this research • Questions: – 1) How much money is being invested in solar* under the stimulus funded State Energy Program (SEP)? – 2) Which states have allocated the most money to solar under the stimulus funded SEP? – 3) How much stimulus funded SEP is still available to possibly fund solar? *Solar includes: PV and Solar Thermal (usually for water heating with a few space heating p j g projects) )
  • 4. Methodology M th d l • Reviewed SEP ARRA Plans – Excluded EECBG, WAP, Treasury Grants, EPA funds, regular SEP funding • Contacts at SEOs • R i Reviewed SEO and other State Websites d d th St t W b it (Governors’’ press releases) • Recorded and categorized the $ amounts
  • 5. Categorizing the $$$ Degree of Certainty • Explicitly Allocated and Planned for Solar p y f • RE Funding (solar funding possible) • EE Funding ( g (solar funding p f g possible) ) SEP Funding Unavailable for Solar
  • 6. RESULTS American Recovery and Reinvestment Act SEP: $3.1 $3 1 B STILL POSSIBLY AVAILABLE: AVAILABLE Loans: $575 M L RE Grants: $146 M $1.14 B EE Grants: $423 M SOLAR: $310 M Solar Grants: $246 M Solar Rebates: $64 M
