California Offers Industrial Development Bonds for Clean Energy in Manufacturing
The California Power Authority, a new state agency created during last summer's electricity crisis, announced in March the availability of $30 million for low-interest financing for manufacturing companies using or producing clean energy products. The power authority defines clean energy as renewable energy, energy efficiency, or "clean" distributed generation. The low-cost loans will go either to manufacturers that purchase and install such technologies, or to manufacturers who want to establish or expand facilities to produce such technologies.
