Pennsylvania Solar Rebates Restored

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
