The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced plans to provide Salt Lake City with $200,000 in funding and $400,000 in technical support over the next two years as part of a program to increase solar power usage.

A report by KCPW News states the funding is part of DOE's Solar America Initiative, which has targeted 13 cities for increased solar usage. The Utah effort, which has been given the title Solar Salt Lake Project, has the goal of 10,000 new solar systems installed on commercial and residential properties within the next eight years.

Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson told KCPW News the new program will include subsidies that complement existing tax credits designed to boost incentives for solar installations.
