by CESA and Peregrine Energy Group

This new report from CESA demonstrates how state clean energy funds have emerged as a major driver of renewable energy projects across the U.S with results from 1998-2007. Within the past decade, states from Connecticut to California have funded 52,000 projects using the full range of renewable energy technologies, including wind, solar, biomass, and hydropower. The 10-year voluntary investment by states of $1.9 billion has leveraged $10.1 billion in additional project investment and added 2.5 new, clean Gigawatts to the grid. June 2010.
