Tennessee Solar Installation Grant Update

The Tennessee Solar Institute (TSI) is no longer accepting applications for their Solar Installation Grant.  The grant awarded funds to assist in the purchase and installation of solar PV systems located on or adjacent to non-residential buildings.  Strong statewide interest lead to numerous applications for the $9 million in grant funds, and they have been completely alloted for at this point.  If additional funds become available, TSI will consider re-opening the grant.

Funds are still available for the Solar Innovation Grant, and the deadline for applications is Friday, September 24th.  Find out more about the Tennessee Solar Institute at their website.
