It's been over 18 months since the U.S. government passed the stimulus bill ( http://blog.cleantechies.com/2009/02/19/climate-change-the-s... ) and decided to spend $31B on cleantech grants and loan guarantees. A year ago, David Gold with Access Venture Partners thought that the measure wasn't very stimulating. Now he takes a fresh look ( http://blog.cleantechies.com/2010/09/20/cleantech-stimulus-s... ). With only 23% of the appropriated funds paid out, his assessment isn't positive. He fears much of the grants and loans will turn out to be a waste of money. Do you agree?

CleanTechies Legal Q&A – NEW!
The new CleanTechies Legal Q&A answers your questions on cleantech law and policy issues - try it out!
Latest Question– submitted by Solar Contractor:
Is Placing an Order for Solar Panels Considered "Construction"?
If we order solar panels from our manufacturer in 2010 specifically for the project we are filing for, does that fulfill the “safe harbor” requirement of “beginning construction”? If so, would that cost need to be at least 5% of the total project cost to qualify?
