The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is extending the application deadline for the July 2009 energy efficiency, renewable energy, and advanced transmission and distribution technologies solicitation. The new Part I application deadline is now Oct 5. This gives companies an additional six weeks to apply for a loan guarantee under Section 1705, provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
The extension creates an eighth round of solicitations by the DOE's Loan Guarantee Program and is intended to give companies additional time to develop and submit Part I applications. The Part II application deadline is still Dec. 31.
