Food Production Investment Program

Food production costs generally tend to be higher in California than elsewhere and California’s food processing industry faces stiff out-of-state and international competition. Providing support for updating and improving food production facilities with energy efficient and/or renewable energy technologies will reduce operating costs and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This could help ensure California’s food processing industries remain competitive and operational, and the jobs associated with food production remain in California.

Economic Development Administration Disaster Grants

The U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) is awarding $587 million in grants to eligible entities to address economic challenges in disaster-impacted areas. These grants will support disaster recovery activities in areas receiving a major disaster designation as a result of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, and wildfires and other 2017 natural disasters. EDA disaster grants will be made by regional offices under the Economic Adjustment Assistance (EAA) program, which can support a wide range of construction and non-construction activities.

Renewable Energy Systems & Energy Efficiency Improvement Loans & Grants

USDA Rural Development is seeking applications for its Rural Energy for America Program. The program provides grants and guaranteed loans to farmers and small businesses to support the installation of renewable energy and energy efficiency improvements. Applicants may apply for grants up to 25% of the total project costs. Energy efficiency grants can range from $1,500 to $250,000 while renewable energy grants range from $2,500 to $500,000. Examples of former projects include, but are not limited to, the installation of:
  • wood pellet boilers
  • solar panels

Energy Infrastructure Deployment of Tribal lands

Business Energy Investment Tax Credit (ITC) - Amador County APCD

The federal Business Energy Investment Tax Credit (ITC) has been amended a number of times, most recently in December 2015. The table below shows the value of the investment tax credit for each technology by year. The expiration date for solar technologies and wind is based on when construction begins. For all other technologies, the expiration date is based on when the system is placed in service (fully installed and being used for its intended purpose).
