The Alternative and Clean Energy Program (ACE) provides financial assistance in the form of grant and loan funds for the development and installation of alternative and clean energy projects in the state. Fuel cells that run on natural gas qualify, in addition to several other types of distributed generation, energy efficiency and clean technology. The program is administered jointly by the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED), and the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) under the direction of the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA).

Funding is available for fuel cell projects with no maximum project size and is limited to $2M or 30% of project cost. Project funding is also subjective and requires DCED board approval.
