Under the 2009 program residential systems up to 10 kW and non-residential systems up to 50 kW are eligible for incentives. In the past rebates have been reduced by 15% for owner- installed systems, although this distinction does not appear on the 2009 applications. Residential customers that participate in the OCE Home Performance with Energy Star or the Residential New Home Construction programs are eligible for slightly higher incentives.

26 26F0_7680_c13 © 2000, Cisco Systems, Inc. Stimulus Package Through the Eyes of RE Renewable Energy GrantsRenewable Energy Grants –Creates a new program through the Department of Treasury that provides grants equal to 30 percent of the cost of solar property placed in service during 2009 and 2010, in lieu of the section 48 investment tax credit. (Div. B, Sec. 1104, p. 38) Property that is not placed in service prior to December 31st, 2010 qualifies for the grant program as long as construction begins prior to December 31st, 2010 and is placed in service by January 1, 2017. Applications must be filed by October 1, 2011. (Div. B, Sec. 1603, p. 153) Key details such as what constitutes an application and begins construction will be defined in the near future by the Treasury Department. Repeals Penalty for Subsidized Renewable Energy FinancingRepeals Penalty for Subsidized Renewable Energy Financing –Allows businesses and individuals to qualify for the full amount of the solar tax credit, even if projects receive subsidized energy financing (e.g. below market loans, tax preferred bonds, state grants etc.). This amendment shall apply to periods after Dec. 31, 2008. (Div. B, Sec. 1103, p.36) Renewable Energy Loan Guarantee ProgramRenewable Energy Loan Guarantee Program –Establishes a temporary DOE loan guarantee program for renewable energy projects, renewable energy manufacturing facilities and electric power transmission projects. Appropriates $6 billion to pay the credit subsidy costs, which should support $60 billion worth of loan guarantees. Eligible renewable projects are those that generate electricity or thermal energy and facilities that manufacture related components. Projects must commence construction by September 30, 2011. Davis Bacon wage requirements (prevailing federal wage) apply to any project receiving a loan guarantee. (Div. A, p. 63 & p. 77)

27 27F0_7680_c13 © 2000, Cisco Systems, Inc. Stimulus Package Through the Eyes of RE Renewable Energy Manufacturing Investment CreditRenewable Energy Manufacturing Investment Credit –Provides up to $2.3 billion to fund 30 percent investment tax credit for manufacturing assets used to manufacture of advanced energy property. Projects must be certified by the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of Energy, through a competitive application process. Effective upon enactment. (Div., B, Sec. 48 C, p. 102) Remove Limits on Solar Water HeatingRemove Limits on Solar Water Heating –Section 25D provides a personal tax credit for the purchase of qualified solar water heating property that is used for a purpose other than heating swimming pools and hot tubs. The 30 percent ITC has a monetary cap of $2,000. This provision removes the $2,000 cap, providing a full 30 percent credit for qualified solar water heating property. The credit may be claimed against the alternative minimum tax. (Div. B, Sec. 1122(a), p. 46) Extend Bonus DepreciationExtend Bonus Depreciation –Last year, Congress temporarily increased the amount (50% of the cost of capital investment) that small businesses could write off for capital expenditures incurred in 2008 to $250,000 and increased the phase out threshold for 2008 to $800,000. The bill would extend these temporary increases for capital expenditures incurred in 2009. Accordingly, until the end of 2010, small business taxpayers are allowed to write off up to $125,000 (indexed for inflation) of capital expenditures subject to a phase out once capital expenditures exceed $500,000 (indexed for inflation). (Div. B, Sec 1202, p. 74)

Specifies that states shall use 18.2% of this money for public safety and other government services, including the renovation of facilities and schools to meet green building standards. Solar energy projects qualify. (Div. A, Sec. 14001 14002, pp. 425 429) Green Collar JobsGreen Collar Jobs –Appropriates $500 million to fund job training programs in energy efficiency and renewable energy. (Div. A, Title VIII, p. 148) Also appropriates $250 million for rehabilitation and construction projects on Job Corps Centers, including energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. (Div. A, Title VIII, p. 150) Smart GridSmart Grid –The legislation provides up to 50% reimbursement to smart grid demonstration projects in urban, suburban, tribal, and rural areas, including areas where electric system assets are controlled by nonprofit entities or investor owned utilities. The Secretary of Energy is also required to maintain a smart grid information clearinghouse. As a condition of qualification, demonstration projects are required to use open protocols and standards. (Div. A, Section 405, p. 72) –The legislation provides a 30% tax credit for property designed to produce energy conservation technologies (including energy conserving lighting technologies and smart grid technologies) (Div. B, Section 48C, Page 10)

29 29F0_7680_c13 © 2000, Cisco Systems, Inc. Stimulus Package Through the Eyes of RE Qualified Energy Conservation BondsQualified Energy Conservation Bonds –Authorizes an additional $2.4 billion, up from $800 million, in bonds to finance State, municipal and tribal government programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These bonds can be used by government agencies to reduce energy consumption in publicly owned buildings by at least 20 percent, implement green community programs, or develop electricity from renewable energy resources. Demonstration projects that reduce peak electrical use also qualify. Public education campaigns to promote energy efficiency can also be funded. (Div B, Sec. 1112, Page 40) Solar Water Treatment PlantsSolar Water Treatment Plants –Provides $6 billion for the State and Tribal Assistance Grants account ($4 billion for the Clean Water State Revolving Funds and $2 billion for the Drinking Water State Revolving Funds). To ensure that the funds are used immediately to create jobs, the money must be committed to projects under contract or construction within 12 months of the date of enactment. –The bill requires that not less than 20 percent of each Revolving Fund be available for projects to address green infrastructure, water and/or energy efficiency, or other environmentally innovative technologies. The bill allows States to use less than 20 percent for these types of projects only if the States lack sufficient applications. (Div A, Title VII, p. 137)

Stimulus Package Through the Eyes of RE Solar on Federal PropertySolar on Federal Property –Appropriates $5.5. billion to be deposited into the Federal Buildings Fund for expenditures to construct, repair and make alterations on federal buildings to increase energy efficiency, including installing solar energy equipment. $4.5 billion shall be available for measures necessary to convert GSA facilities to high performance green buildings. (Div. A, Title V, General Services Administration, p. 88) –Appropriates $1 billion for non recurring maintenance on Veterans Affairs facilities, including energy projects. (Div. A, p. 213) –GSA estimates that 75% of the anticipated projects will include a solar component. Department of Energy FundingDepartment of Energy Funding – Appropriates $16.8 billion to DOEs Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, including $2.5 billion for applied research, development, demonstration, and deployment projects. (Div. A, p. 59 and Joint Statement A, p. 24) The total amount includes specific appropriations for the following: Conservation block grants $3.2 billionConservation block grants $3.2 billion Weatherization $5.0 billionWeatherization $5.0 billion State Programs $3.1 billionState Programs $3.1 billion Batteries $2.0 billionBatteries $2.0 billion Department of Interior FundingDepartment of Interior Funding –Appropriates $125 million to BLM for the management of lands and resources and suggests funds be used for renewable energy rights of way and related permitting projects.

PSE&G Takes this Seriously and Offers Financing to homes Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G) asked New Jersey regulatorsasked today to approve an ambitious $773 million plan to bring 120 MW of solar power to the state. The plan, which will use brown fields and underdeveloped properties for solar generation, will eliminate 1.7 million tons of CO2 emissions. It will also bring New Jersey 7 percent closer to its goal of getting 22.5 percent of its power from renewable energy by 2020.
