As part of Gov. Phil Bredesen's Volunteer State Solar Initiative, the Tennessee Solar Institute (TSI) has announced a commitment of $7 million in Solar Innovation Grants to fund 37 projects throughout the state. A total of 21 Tennessee businesses, representing eight of the nine U.S. congressional districts in the state, were awarded grants.
The TSI says it will now begin accepting grant applications for its next round of Solar Innovation Grants. An additional $7.25 million of grant funding is available to solar firms under the second round of grants. TSI will accept proposals in six different funding categories.
