$4 million in grants available to fund renewable energy projects

The Fresno BeeJune 19, 2014 

The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District has a new round of funding available for projects focusing on renewable energy, waste solutions or mobile sources. Proposals for the Technology Advancement Program (TAP) will be accepted until 5 p.m. Aug. 15. They will be competitively scored based on objective criteria.

Questions about proposal requirements will be answered at a free workshop at 2 p.m. July 2 at the air district's Fresno office. In addition, the workshop will be aired by video teleconference to the Modesto and Bakersfield offices, as well as to Environmental Protection Agency offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

The air district and the EPA are funding this fourth cycle of the TAP program. Emission reductions from the selected projects will help the Valley air basin meet its air quality goals.

The Request for Proposals form can be downloaded at http://www.valleyair.org/TAP.
