Subject to fund availability, an eligible corporation may receive a grant for certain kilowatt hours of electricity produced after December 31, 2006. The grant amount shall be $.0085 for each kilowatt hour of electricity (i) produced by the corporation from qualified energy resources at a qualified Virginia facility and (ii) sold and transmitted into the electric grid, or used in production by a qualified Virginia facility, in a calendar year.
