Florida Opens 2013 Solar Rebate Applications

Residential or commercial Florida Power & Light (FPL)
customers considering a solar power system can apply for 2013 rebates beginning
on October 16, 2012 at 8:30 am. Home owners can qualify for a rebate
of $2 per watt of the DC output of a PV system, up to $20,000.
Businesses’s can receive one rebate of up to $50,000 per premise during the
life of the program. Customers with multiple locations can apply for rebates
for multiple locations up to a limit of $150,000 per funding year. These
Florida rebates can be combined with the 30% federal energy tax credit for even
greater savings.

Florida customers can shop for complete pre-engineered solar power kits with every component
needed at prices from $2 to $3 per watt, depending on the system size. At these
prices, do-it-yourself customers can go solar for well under $1 per watt.

The rebates are part of a five-year pilot program authorized by
the Florida Public Service Commission. The rebates are not available for new
construction or PV systems that are already installed. Applicants must be
current account holders of the premise where the solar photovoltaic system is
being installed. 

The residential PV rebate in Florida is for
solar electric panels, mounting hardware, grid-interactive electric
inverter(s), optional battery systems, associated cabling, and for systems over
10 kilowatt AC, disconnect devices. This rebate program is only for
grid-interactive PV systems with a minimum nameplate rating of 2 kilowatts
direct current (DC) and a maximum nameplate rating of 2 megawatts. All
components must be tested and listed by a nationally recognized testing and
certification laboratory for continuous interactive operation with an electric
distribution system in compliance with the applicable codes and standards. All
products installed must be new, not refurbished or previously installed.
