WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THIS GRANT.

These grants are distributed from the Local Renewable Generation Fund – an opt-in fund to which members can contribute to support the development of renewable generation projects in the region. LPEA endeavors to put those amassed dollars back into the community for the greatest member benefit. The LPEA board decides each spring if funds will be allocated to this grant program. With general questions, email grants@lpea.coop.

When applying for a Renewable Generation Fund grant, you must:

  • Be a not-for-profit organization in good standing with the IRS within LPEA's service territory.
  • Demonstrate educational, charitable, low-income, or public safety need.
  • Provide proof of easement or title to the property where the renewable generation project will be installed.
  • Complete an LPEA Interconnection/Net Metering Application for the renewable generation project.

Grants may be awarded to partially fund projects based upon matching funds and preference will be given to projects with 100% (1 to 1) matching.
