All Renewable Development Fund projects that are eligible to receive an Energy Trust installation incentive must work with an Energy Trust solar trade ally contractor and receive a cover letter through the Solar Development Assistance (SDA) incentive pathway prior to applying to the Renewable Development Fund. We encourage interested parties to work with our Energy Trust colleagues to determine proper timing.
