Our management team has just received a notification from the Salt River Project solar team with the following:
Effective today, SRP is temporarily suspending its residential and small commercial solar electric incentive programs until May 1, 2011. During the interim time period from now until May 1, 2011 when the new budget and incentive levels will be announced, limited funds have been set aside for residential and small commercial customers willing to invest in a solar project. The incentive will be at a reduced level of $1 per watt as opposed to the current level of $2.15 per watt for residential customers and $2 per watt for small commercial customers. This will allow customers to move forward with a project should they decide to do so now, or they may wait until the next fiscal year when the incentive could be higher than $1 per watt. Other than the change in the incentive level, all other program requirements will remain intact.
At this time, the solar water heater programs for both residential and commercial customers, as well as the large commercial solar electric program, will remain unchanged.
What does this mean for you if you still want to purchase a solar system for your home?
