Mine the stimulus bill for CleanTech and Renewable Energy projects

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is the name of the much-touted economic stimulus bill headed for the president’s desk. It’s big, to the tune of $789 billion. What happens now?
Obama plans to sign it tomorrow morning and the money will be spent in short order, in hopes of reviving the economy. Governors will play a big part in how the money is spent, based on lists submitted by state and local agencies.
CleanTech has a big part to play in this recovery. Later this week MacKinnon will be writing some deeper analysis of the bill’s 1000+ pages – in the meantime take a look at Stimulus Watch,  a web site set up to monitor how the dollars are doled out.
There are pages set up for separate states, and sections on energy, transportation, water and other wish list categories. You can search by keyword for hot topics like solar and breezy topics like wind.
Go wild, and let’s pick out some projects worth discussing.
