Cleantech Transit Inc. (OTC.BB:CLNO) announced in a recent press release that funding to be provided to Phoenix Energy for the commercialization of a 500 Kilowatt biomass gasification plant should be eligible to apply for a renewable energy cash back incentive program offered by the U.S. Federal Government. If it concludes its planned investment in Phoenix Energy, under Section 1603 of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, Cleantech Transit will be entitled to receive its pro-rata share of 30% cash grant payments. Once the final interconnect process and application are complete the grant should be received within 60 days. The 5-year grant vesting period, means all parties must remain owner of record for that length of time, underscoring Cleantech and its partners’ commitment to this project and the host community.
The U.S. Treasury’s cash grant program was created to provide funding, in lieu of tax credits, for the development of clean energy projects and clean tech jobs nationwide. The Merced facility has already employed several individuals, both for the construction phase and subsequent plant operations once in service.
As previously announced, the full commercial operation of the first plant is expected to be completed during the second quarter of 2011.
Alex Holtermann, CEO of Cleantech, commented, “The structure of this cash back program will add more predictability to our financing needs. The cash back incentive program also applies for new projects, which can accelerate the installation of other plants this year.”
