Note: The Ohio Advanced Energy Fund (AEF) expired as of December 31, 2010. With its expiration, the AEF, which is a public benefit fund, is no longer collecting money and thus unable to financially support ODOD programs. For any questions on the Advanced Energy Fund, please contact the Ohio Energy Resources Division directly using the contact information below. This information is for historical purposes only.

The Ohio Energy Resources Division, which resides within the Ohio Department of Development (ODOD), is offering grants on a first-come, first-served basis for the installation of new residential wind energy systems in the service areas of the following utilities: American Electric Power, Dayton Power and Light, Duke Energy, and FirstEnergy. Customers of these utilities pay into the Ohio Advanced Energy Fund, which provides funds for the incentive.

* The approved residential wind energy installer applies for and receives the grant, which is then passed directly to the end-use customer. Residential Wind Energy Incentive (NOFA 09-02) The incentive is calculated as the lesser of $2/AC kilowatt-hour (kWh) of estimated annual system output or 50% of eligible system costs, up to a maximum incentive of $25,000. The system must be based in Ohio and intended for use on the primary home of the eligible customer. In order to be eligible for a grant, systems must have an estimated annual output of 3,000 kWh based on the average site wind speed at the proposed turbine hub height.

Project equipment may not be ordered, purchased, or installed prior to the execution of a grant agreement with the ODOD. Incentives are only available for installations performed by an installer approved by the OERD. The AEF Grants website contains information on the criteria and application process for becoming an approved installer and a list of approved installers.
