Each year, the NHPUC issues a request for proposals. To be eligible for funding under this RFP, projects must utilize grant funds primarily for capital investments in new, REC-eligible renewable energy facilities, upgrades to existing facilities to increase REC production, or upgrades to existing renewable energy facilities that will qualify them as eligible for RECs. Projects must be in the non-residential sector in New Hampshire. Renewable energy includes electricity generated from wind, ocean thermal, wave, current, tidal, hydrogen derived from biomass fuels or methane gas, methane gas, biomass, hydroelectric, and solar electric technologies or useful thermal energy produced from ground source geothermal heat pumps, biomass, and solar thermal technologies. Projects cannot be eligible for rebate programs administered by the NH PUC. Thus a pellet boiler project over 2.5 MMBTU or a wood chip project will qualify. Numerous biomass heating projects have been partially funded through this RFP over the last three years.
