This Program Opportunity Notice is meant to allocate grant funding through a competitive grant process to help support power line upgrades for rural business that can benefit from distributed renewable generation that can otherwise not be economically interconnected.
DOER is committed to increase the development of clean energy sources and to assist businesses throughout the Commonwealth to adopt reliable, clean distributed generation (DG). In many cases the development of larger scale (greater than 25 kW, up to several MW) distributed renewable energy resources requires upgrades to electrical distribution lines for interconnection to the utility grid. In certain cases access to three-phase power lines and other means to smooth out voltages from intermittent resources are constraints that inhibit a business from being able to adopt renewable distributed generation. The lack of three-phase power lines and other interconnection challenges in rural Massachusetts has restricted distributed generation particularly in rural areas. Meanwhile, rural regions of the Commonwealth have important land and renewable energy resources to contribute to the renewable energy market expansion and to support local businesses and economic development.
