WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Department of 鹿鼎彩票代理 (DOE) announced selections for $130 million in new projects to advance solar technologies. Through the Office of 鹿鼎彩票代理 Efficiency and Renewable 鹿鼎彩票代理’s Solar 鹿鼎彩票代理 Technologies Office, DOE will fund 67 research projects across 30 states that reduce the cost of solar, increase U.S. manufacturing competitiveness, and improve the reliability of the nation’s electric grid.

“Ensuring low-cost, reliable electricity for all Americans while minimizing risk is a top priority for this department,” said U.S. Secretary of 鹿鼎彩票代理 Dan Brouillette. “That means creating domestic manufacturing opportunities and increasing the power system’s resilience in case of disruptions.
