The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative (MTC), as administrator of the state's Renewable Energy Trust Fund, offers loans to support renewable energy companies entering or expanding within the manufacturing stage of commercial development. Companies that currently, or plan to, manufacture renewable energy technology products in Massachusetts are generally eligible. Products may be new or existing, or a combination of the two. Interested applicants must submit a pre-application prior to submitting a full application. Pre-applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis. If the MTC determines that an applicant is eligible for funding after this threshold review, a full application will be requested.
