The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) provides almost $94 billion dollars in direct and indirect spending, through tax incentives, grants and loan guarantees to clean energy companies and projects. While financing challenges continue to hold back many worthy companies and projects, we believe that the ARRA funding will provide an important and significant boost to the clean energy industry over the next eighteen months.
We recognize that the funding opportunities presented by ARRA do not apply uniformly to all sectors of the clean energy industry, and that the opportunities that may apply to a particular company or project are often buried in the legislation, with the result that the applicability and application processes are often difficult to discern. Accordingly, we created this guide to separately identify the programs and the potential sources of funding under ARRA based on the type of company or project rather than the typical approach of describing the tax incentives, grants or loan guarantees generally for all types of clean energy companies and projects.
