There’s some exciting news for Pennsylvania residents considering a solar system. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has announced that $7.25 million has been allocated to fund the state’s Sunshine Solar Rebate Program. The new funding also incorporates some changes that will allow for a more streamlined application process.
Some of the details of the program include:
- The new guidelines for a residential system allow an applicant to apply for $.75 per watt of installed solar system with a maximum of $7500.00 for a 10 kW system. The maximum for a small commercial system (100 kW) is $52,500.00.
- The new application process is greatly streamlined, and application will be reviewed and approved by DEP staff on a first-come, first served basis.
- The program will close when funding is exhausted, or not later than December 31, 2013
- As in the past, the program requires that the installation, and application for the rebate be performed by a DEP approved PV installer. Milestone Solar is an approved PA installer — Installer #626
