Community Scale Wind Initiative Block 7 is Now Open for Applications.
The Commonwealth Wind Community Scale Initiative provides grants through a competitive application process for the installation of Wind Projects by professional, licensed contractors at commercial, industrial, institutional, residential, and Public Entity facilities. The Applicant and project site must both be served by distribution utilities that pay into the Massachusetts Renewable Energy Trust Fund, administered by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC). The grants are based on the size and other characteristics of the Wind Project. MassCEC is offering grant funding for the in-depth study of the feasibility and the design and construction of eligible wind projects. MassCEC also offers site assessment grants of services to qualified public entities for high level reviews of potential sites. Site assessment applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
