Ohio Awards Almost $1 Million to Distributed Generation Projects

December 03, 2003

The Ohio Department of Development (ODD) awarded $924,019 in grants to 26 distributed generation projects on September 11. The projects cover a wide range of technologies, including solar power systems, solar thermal systems, wind turbines, a biomass-to-energy system, a gas turbine, and a reciprocating engine, to be installed in homes and businesses. Total cost of the projects is $15.3 million; the bulk of the investment comes from private sources.

Many of the projects involve "hybrid" systems that combine two or more technologies, and several use waste heat produced by the electrical generators. For more information, see ODD's September 11 press release.
