Summary:

The American Made Renewable Energy Technology Implementation Incentive will provide a cash incentive directly to customers who purchase renewable energy systems that are made in the USA. The sliding scale per watt of rated capacity incentive is a set rate designed to offset installation costs.

Technology must be UL approved and made in the USA.

At least one NABCEP certified installer must be present during work hours.

A multiplier of 1.2 will be applied for installation projects with at least 20\% of the workforce in training for certification. This purpose of multiplier is to encourage the creation of entry level jobs in the renewable energy sector.

Requirements:

To apply for the incentive, the following conditions must be met:

* Renewable energy must be grid-tied and net metered
* Each project must be completely funded
* All applicable permits must be approved
* All products used in the installation must be manufactured in the United States
* For multiplier effect entry level jobs must be created by installers by hiring and training entry level employees. Entry level employees can be considered those employees gaining new sector specific experience for the first 3 years of employment hired on after this incentive has been enacted.

The cash incentive has no cap and will be paid directly to the system owner once the system is fully operational, and the installation has been signed off by the electrical inspector.

Purpose:

This incentive will create "green collar jobs" in united states in the manufacturing, installation, sales, design, and maintenance of renewable energy systems.

The lowered costs of implementation of renewable energy technologies will stimulate consumer spending, coupled with the incentive to buy American will create countless jobs that truly stimulate the American economy.

This incentive will employ current trades people as well as encourage the hiring of entry level employees with its multiplier effect.
