Ohio: $100,000 in grants for builders marketing solar energy systems

The Ohio Department of Development will award $100,000 in grants funded through the Energy Loan Fund for the installation of solar energy systems on model homes and newly built homes in the same development.

ODOD is soliciting proposals from licensed builders and developers to build solar demonstration model homes, to market solar homes and to encourage homebuyers who choose eligible solar options to also apply for incentives.

Projects must be in the service areas of AEP, Cinergy, Dayton Power and Light and First Energy to be eligible, as the Energy Loan Fund is provided through a small rider on their electric bills.
