State officials are in the final stages of reviewing renewable energy projects eligible for $100 million in state funding and expect to make final recommendations to a legislative committee Dec. 7, state energy director Steve Haagenson told a state energy task force Nov. 10.

House Bill 162, passed by the Legislature in the 2008 session, set up a $250 million state renewable energy grant program, with the current $100 million funding as the first year increment, and requires the audit committee to approve the first round of renewable energy projects. Subsequent rounds of funding must be approved by the entire Legislature.
