Looking Beyond the Treasury 1603 Cash Grant for 2011

In December, President Barack Obama signed the tax legislation that extends the US Department of the Treasury’s 1603 cash grant program for the solar and wind industries for one year. With an extension of this program now in place, the solar industry can continue its record growth, creating new employment opportunities for Americans in 2011 and growing the number of solar projects. As momentum in the solar industry continues, the industry must proceed with caution to not make rash decisions. This program could supercharge growth in 2011, but make it for difficult for integrators to plan past next year, as many 2012 projects could be pulled into 2011. Companies who are taking advantage of this grant must think about not only how it will affect next year, but also the years beyond.
