U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is extending the application deadline for the July 2009 energy efficiency, renewable energy, and advanced transmission and distribution technologies solicitation. The Part I application deadline is now Oct. 5. This change gives companies an additional six weeks to apply for a loan guarantee under Section 1705, provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
The extension creates an eighth round of solicitations by the DOE's loan-guarantee program and is intended to give companies additional time to develop and submit Part I applications. The Part II application deadline is still Dec. 31.
