In response to the clean energy industry’s request for streamlined Clean Energy Grant Program Application processes, our Residential grant program is shifting (as of 6/13/2012) from a two-step process (application package to reserve the funds + completion package when the project is done) to a one-step, post-installation process-which we believe will save you folks quite a bit of time and hassle. The new one-step application process can start after your project is installed and will require only 4 sets of documents:
1. Application form
2. Proof that the project is paid for in full with a copy of a zero-balance, final invoice
3. Copies of all issued inspection documents, permit documents, etc. as provided by the local authority having jurisdiction.
4. A photograph of the installed clean energy system. If the system is a roof-mounted PV or SWH system, the photograph must clearly demonstrate where the system has been installed, with all panels or collectors clearly visible.
There are a few changes stemming from new regulations, too. See full details and documents at http://energy.maryland.gov/Residential/cleanenergygrants/index.html
As always, Ground Loop will assist with the paperwork for the incentives, however this is not a guarantee that funds will be received.
