Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements
Available for Domestic manufacturers of components of solar, wind, batteries, and inverters, as well as refiners, prodicers miners etc of specific critical minerals.
Accelerating the development of domestic manufacturing will help increase the deployment of clean energy technologies broadly, as many programs, including tax credits for electric vehicles and renewable energy, require or strongly incentivize domestic content.
Training a domestic workforce will be critical for domestic manufacturing of these technologies. Consider working with regional economic development commissions and other community-based organizations to determine the most equitable local and regional partnerships.
Tax-exempt entities can leverage these credits through a new mechanism known as "elective" or "direct" pay.
