Florida Power & Light (FPL) is reopening the application period for its 2011 solar rebate program to distribute approximately $5 million in remaining funds. Applications can be submitted at the FPL website starting at 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 30.
The solar power rebates are $2 per watt of the DC output of a PV system, up to $20,000. Rebates will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and funds are expected to run out quickly, FPL says. The application process for the 2011 rebates first opened on June 29, and customers claimed reservations for the available solar PV funds in less than an hour.
Rebates for solar water heating are also still available, FPL adds. The solar water heating rebate is $1,000 per installed solar water heater. According to the FPL as of this writing, there was $124,000 in water heating rebate funds available.
