- Xcel Solar Rewards: RDA funds will help Xcel extend its program that pays incentives for qualified residential and small commercial solar systems into 2024.
- Granite Falls Hydropower Dam: RDA funds will pay for a new turbine and help the dam undergo repairs.
- Community Transition Grants: RDA funds will support economic development activities in communities with retiring fossil fuel plants.
