The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) offers a Commonwealth Organics-to-Energy grant program. Organics-to-Energy grants support the use of anaerobic digestion and other technologies that convert source-separated organic wastes into electricity and thermal energy. Grants are available to electricity customers served by the following Massachusetts investor-owned electric utilities, which pay into the Massachusetts Renewable Energy Trust Fund: Fitchburg Gas and Electric Light (Unitil), National Grid, NSTAR Electric and Western Massachusetts Electric. In addition, customers of certain municipal lighting plant (MLP) utilities are also eligible including Ashburnham, Holden, Holyoke, Russell, and Templeton. There are three separate solicitations under this program. Each solicitation has specific eligibility and requirements, the information provided here is a summary only. 1. Technical Services/Technical Study Grants Only public entities are eligible for the technical services grants. Up to $60,000 is available per grant and a 5% cost-share is required. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Specific eligible activities include: * Technical assistance in the development, evaluation and procurement of contracts through a Request for Qualifications/Request for Proposals process * Technical assistance for proposals to site organics-to energy facilities within a public entity's jurisdiction * Public engagement processes for matching community needs with organics processing options * Pre-feasibility studies for sites, generator clusters, or technical approaches to handling identified organic waste streams 2. Feasibility Studies Both public and private (profit or not-for-profit) entities are eligible to apply. Activities supported include assessing feedstock, the technical and engineering feasibility of the project, interconnection requirements, identifying any community impacts or issues, among other activities. Up to $40,000 is available with a 5% cost share for public entities and 20% cost share for non-public entities. 3. Construction and Pilot Projects Both public and private (profit or not-for-profit) entities are eligible to apply. Activities supported include designing, permitting, and construction as well as installation and/or commissioning of equipment. There are some key differences and eligibility requirements between "construction projects" and "pilot projects" and there are corresponding funding amounts available. Construction projects may be eligible for 25% of the total project costs, up to $400,000 and pilot projects may be eligible for 50% of the total project costs, up to $200,000. MassCEC is accepting applications for all project types.
