The Solar Grant Program provides grants for PV and solar water heating installations on housing enrolled in the city's affordable housing program, site-based non-profit organizations, and low- to moderate-income housing owned and/or developed by a non-profit organization. Individual grant amounts are determined on a case-by-case basis but generally will not exceed 50% of the total out-of-pocket costs for the project after all rebates, tax credits, and other incentives are subtracted. There are two grant cycles each year. Submissions are due by April 30 and October 31. Additional information and grant applications can be found on the website listed above.
The Solar Grant Program is funded out of sales and use taxes paid on solar projects in the City of Boulder. A portion of those taxes are rebated under the Solar Sales and Use Tax Rebate program.
