On February 17, 2009, President Barack Obama signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). Many of the provisions in this Recovery Act, which constitutes the largest single economic stimulus program in U.S. history, open up new sources of funding and procurement opportunities for renewable energy facilities, energy infrastructure and energy efficiency programs. The clean-energy provisions are a central piece of the Recovery Act. Out of a total of $787 billion in spending and tax incentives, the Recovery Act directs approximately $43 billion to renewable energy and clean technology-related programs and includes approximately $22 billion in energy-related tax incentives.

On February 19, 2009, Secretary of Energy Steven Chu announced sweeping reorganization of the Department of Energy (DOE) to expedite disbursement of Recovery Act funds. Secretary Chu noted, "We need to start this work in a matter of months, not years." Subsequently, the DOE's funding opportunities under Recovery Act authority have included relatively speedy timelines to application deadline, project selection, and award funding.
