Green Energy Ohio (GEO) is a statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting economically and environmentally sustainable energy policies and practices in Ohio. GEO serves as the Ohio Chapter of the American Solar Energy Society. 

GEO is pleased to announce that it has been selected by The Sierra Club to receive funding to administer a solar thermal rebate program in Ohio. GEO is now receiving applications for rebates on solar water heating systems purchased after April 1, 2009 on residential properties in Ohio for the primary purpose to supplement domestic water heating. Qualifying applicants may apply for the rebate to cover a portion of the costs of eligible projects. Rebate funds are limited, but subject to program conditions and requirements, qualifying applications will be funded until all the funds allocated for this Notice of Funding Availability (GEO NOFA 09-01) have been exhausted. (Update: As of April 2010 this program is still fully funded and should remain fully funded through 2010).
