The WisconSUN Demonstration Grants are funded by the Energy Center of Wisconsin (a public non-profit) to provide co-funding for "solar energy installations and training programs that promote the transformation of Wisconsin's solar energy marketplace," according to the WisconSUN web site. These annual grants are announced in the winter and selected in the spring. Of the $40,000 awarded in 2000, $20,000 was for "truly building integrated PV systems. The remaining $20,000 funded other PV systems and active solar thermal systems."

It is particularly interesting to note that, "WisconSUN is particularly interested in funding photovoltaic (PV) systems that are owned and operated by for-profit organizations."
