Clean Energy Group's Technical Assistance Fund

Through the Resilient Power Project, Clean Energy Group has established a funding opportunity to advance and accelerate the equitable deployment of resilient solar+storage.

Technical Assistance Fund

The Technical Assistance Fund (TAF) supports the development of reliable, clean energy projects that that strengthen communities by improving energy resilience and reducing energy burdens. The key purpose of the TAF is to fund preliminary technical and financial feasibility analyses of potential energy resilience projects powered primarily by solar photovoltaics combined with battery storage (solar+storage).

Funding Available

The TAF awards grants typically range from $5,000 for a single facility to $15,000 for multiple facilities to cover the cost of engaging a trusted technical services provider to perform a preliminary technical and financial feasibility analyses to determine the sizing, cost, and benefits of solar, battery storage, and other resilient technologies to meet the economic and resilience goals of eligible facilities. The TAF is a year-round program that accepts applications on a rolling basis. Learn more and apply →

Eligible Facilities

The TAF supports resilient power projects that provide access to essential services for low-income populations and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. TAF eligible facilities include affordable housing and critical community facilities, such as health clinics, community centers, fire stations, emergency operations centers, county facilities, nonprofit community services providers, and cooling centers.

How can CEG help you?

Throughout the TAF process, CEG provides one-on-one support, including explaining what resilient power is, how it can benefit a facility, its challenges and limitations, and overviewing the solar+storage development process. CEG is also available to answer any questions that arise and can provide educational opportunities for recipient staff and community members. CEG also communicates regularly with the third-party technical services provider to ensure that the process is as smooth as possible and all questions are answered in a timely manner.
