MassCEC is pleased to invite applications for Site Assessment Grants of Services. This solicitation is open to both public and non-public Community Wind and Commercial Wind projects.
A site assessment provides a preliminary evaluation of the potential for wind development on one or more sites and is the first stage in the evaluation and development process for a wind project. Subsequent MassCEC funding opportunities require a completed site assessment, although the site assessment does not have to be funded through MassCEC.
The goal of the Site Assessment Grant of Services is to help eligible entities identify and evaluate sites that might be appropriate for a wind project, to assess the advantages, disadvantages and potential fatal flaws of each site, and to provide recommendations as to which sites warrant further evaluation.
An updated Commonwealth Wind Site Assessment solicitation was posted on November 27, 2012. Please see the Summary of Changes for an overview of significant modifications. As the program evolves over time, this solicitation may be updated.
