Clean Energy Development Fund (CEDF)
On This Page:
In 2005, the Vermont General Assembly established the Vermont Clean Energy Development Fund (CEDF) through Act 74 (30 V.S.A. § 8015). The purpose of the Fund is to increase the development and deployment of cost-effective and environmentally sustainable electric power resources – primarily with respect to renewable energy resources, and the use of combined heat and power technologies - in Vermont.

The CEDF released a Request for Proposals for distributed wind energy projects. The deadline for proposals is December 12, 2013.
We recived four questions relating to the Distributed Wind Energy RFP. Here are the four questions and the answers to those questions. The deadlinefor proposals is 12/12/13.
Question 1: In the RFP you mention only one proposal per application. Does this mean I can only apply for one turbine or can I apply for two turbines on one proposal? There is one location.
Only one proposal/application per entity/person/team is allowed. That one proposal can include more than one turbine, even if at different locations.
Question 2: Can you give me example of what an “in kind” cost share is? Are there other subsidies available?
An example of in-kind cost share would be the proponent’s staff time on the project that will not be compensated for from the grant funds.
Question 3: The turbines costs are the material and labor paid internally by (the project proponent). Can I use a standard proposed retail price as a cost? In other words are the costs what (the proponent) would charge for the turbine, tower, and installation? Or do you require a detail accounting of material and employee labor? I have few subcontractors.
Answer 4: The costs accounted for must be the actual costs incurred on the project. Detailed accounting of the costs will be required.
The Clean Energy Development Board (CEDB) is charged with approving the Clean Energy Development Fund's (CEDF) annual plan, budget, program design, and strategic plan. The Public Service Department is responsible for the day-to-day decisions of the CEDF. The current Board members were appointed to the CEDB on June 29, 2011.
