USA, California: $4.7 Million Available for Geothermal Grant and Loan Program

Geothermal Grant and Loan Program (GRDA) (CEC)

Today in Sacramento, the California Energy Commission  (CEC) is holding a Pre-Solicitation Staff Workshop on the Geothermal Grant and Loan Program (GRDA).

The GRDA was established to promote development and maintenance of California's vast geothermal energy resources; mitigate any adverse impacts caused by geothermal development; and help local jurisdictions offset the costs of providing public services necessitated by geothermal development.

The CEC anticipates publication of the Grant Funding Opportunity (GFO)
in mid to late November, 2016. The GFO is a competitive grant solicitation of approximately $4.7 million available to fund selected projects.

Grant agreements expected to start in late July 2017 and end in March 2020.
