BIPV module manufacturer, Applied Photovoltaics, will receive nearly US$1.1 Million in tax credits from the federal government.
“Building a robust clean energy sector is how we will create the jobs of the future,” said President Obama. “The Recovery Act awards I am announcing today will help close the clean energy gap that has grown between America and other nations while creating good jobs, reducing our carbon emissions and increasing our energy security.”
“There is no greater priority for this Administration than getting Americans back to work,” said treasury secretary Tim Geithner. “The awards announced today, together with the more than $5 billion in private sector capital spurred by our investment, will drive significant growth in the renewable energy and clean technology manufacturing sectors, good jobs, an energized private sector marketplace and a leadership role for the U.S. in these crucial high-growth markets.”
In addition to designing and manufacturing BIPV modules for custom applications, Applied Photovoltaics specializes in the fabrication of photovoltaic module manufacturing equipment, as well as providing consulting services and PV module sales.
