The Biden administration, through the Department of Energy, announced on Thursday $82 million in funding for domestic solar production and distribution.

Of that, $52 million, which includes $10 million from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, goes to 19 different projects "to strengthen America's domestic solar supply chain," according to a DOE press release. Another $30 million is for "funding for technologies that will help integrate solar energy into the grid."

"The research, development, and demonstration projects aim to enhance domestic solar manufacturing, support the recycling of solar panels, and develop new American-made solar technologies," the release said. "Additionally, this significant investment will help promote cheaper, more efficient solar cells and advance cadmium telluride (CdTe) and perovskite solar manufacturing—two technologies vital to diversifying the solar supply chain."
