In an effort to comply with mandates by the Federal & State governments to purchase 20% of their power from renewable sources by 2012, both SRP and APS have amazing rebate programs that will pay for a significant portion of your solar system. Surprisingly enough, these programs can account for almost 50% of your purchase, making solar energy more affordable than ever. As you look under your utility provider, keep in mind that there are also solar panel tax credits too!
Solar Panels - When you install solar panels on your home, SRP will write you a check for $2.15 per installed watt of solar power when the system has been commissioned. This rebate has a cap of $10,750, which is the equivalent of a 5,000 watt solar power system. Don’t delay because this rebate is scheduled to be scaled back in April of 2011!
Solar Hot Water – SRP will reimburse you a total of $.50 per kWh of savings based upon the systems OG-300 rating. We carry Heliodyne solar hot water systems exclusively, which carry some of the industry’s highest OG-300 ratings. What does this mean for you? A much bigger rebate check from the utility company of course.
Solar Panels – APS has one of the most attractive rebate programs for solar in Arizona. Every system installed can qualify for a $2.15 per watt rebate incentive. The best part of all is that this program does not have a limit to the amount the rebate is good for. As an example, a 5,000 watt solar panel system would get a $10,750 rebate.
Solar Hot Water – Similar to SRP, you will be eligible to receive up to $.50 per kWh of first year savings based on upon the systems OG-300 rating. At Echo Energies, we exclusively use Heliodyne Solar Hot Water systems which holds many of the industries highest OG-300 ratings. This means more money in your pocket!
