Here’s an opportunity to save some money while switching to a solar power system.
Progress Energy Florida’s solar photovoltaic rebate program kicked off this week and it expects great demand from its customers to apply for subsidies for the cost of solar panels. The utility has allocated $1 million for residential customers and another $1 million for commercial customers. Successful applicants will be notified within two months, wrote Ocala.
The rebates are offered through the utility’s SunSense energy program. Rebates for 2011 were first made available in March and were fully allocated on the first two days of the program. The company says it expects a similar level interest in the 2012 rebates which were made available yesterday. Last year, applicants benefitted from an average of US$12,500 and $48,330 in residential and commercial rebates, respectively.
“The SunSense program is a key component of our strategy to assist those customers interested in investing in solar technology,” said Vincent Dolan, president and CEO of Progress Energy Florida.
