The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has extended the due date for applications for its Solar America Showcases opportunity to March 30, 2007. The purpose of showcase is to accelerate demand for solar technologies among key end-use sectors.

DOE will provide selected applicants with specialized technical assistance — not direct financial assistance — on projects that employ large-scale, high-visibility solar installation projects in excess of 100 kilowatts. Technical assistance includes planning, engineering, architectural, evaluation, and other services.

Showcase projects should be able to impact the market for solar technologies through large project size, use of a novel solar technology, or use of a novel application for a solar technology. Or they should be replicable or have replicable components. While all projects need not meet all of these parameters, they should reflect some or most of these qualities.

Showcase installations may include photovoltaic, concentrating solar power, and solar water-heating applications in projects such as commercial facilities, industrial facilities, school systems, prisons, wastewater-treatment plants, college or university facility projects, office towers, shopping malls, municipal offices, retail, and utility-scale applications.
