Solar Power Technology Competitions Announced

Grants and prizes were announced for community solar projects.

The Department of Energy (DOE) announced a number of energy technology competitions last week that will be conducted over the course of the rest of the year. The National Community Solar Partnership has kicked off the Community Power Accelerator Prize competition, which will put 25 teams together to compete for a total of $10 million in prizes. The 2023 Sunny Awards for Equitable Community Solar has also begun, offering $200,000 in prize awards for equitable solar access projects.

“Ensuring every community has access to the benefits from affordable clean energy resources like solar is key to President Biden’s vision of an equitable clean energy future,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm. “With today’s announcements, DOE is providing an exciting new set of tools and important assistance to support solar deployment across the nation so that all communities can enjoy the economic and critical public health benefits that come with deploying renewable energy.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Granholm to seek God’s guidance as she oversees competitions for solar partnerships.
  • For U.S. energy officials to be prudent in the promotion and support of solar energy projects.
