Federal Cost Share Under the Electric Program Investment Charge

Federal Cost Share (PON-14-308):

The purpose of this solicitation is to provide cost share funding to applicants that apply for and receive an award under an eligible federal Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) and meet the requirements of this solicitation.

Projects must fall within one or both of the following stages:
1) The “applied research and development” stage, which includes activities that support pre-commercial technologies and approaches that are designed to solve specific problems in the electricity sector. Applied research and development activities include early, pilot-scale testing activities that are necessary to demonstrate the feasibility of pre-commercial technologies.
2) The “technology demonstration and deployment” stage, which involves the installation and operation of pre-commercial technologies or strategies at a scale sufficiently large and in conditions sufficiently reflective of anticipated actual operating environments to enable appraisal of operational and performance characteristics, and of financial risks.

This solicitation will award projects funded by the Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) Program, an electricity ratepayer surcharge established by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).
