Block 5 of the Commonwealth Solar II Rebate Program
Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) recently announced that Block 5 of the rebate program will be released in early January 2011. Block 5 has the following rebatestructure and is capped at 5kW.
Compared to the 2010 Massachusetts rebates, which had a maximum value of $2.10 per watt, Block 5 rebates have been reduced slightly to amaximum rebate of $1.70 per watt, or $8,500 for a 5kW system. Theserebates are still quite substantial and can help reduce installationcosts by more than half, especially when combined with the 30% Federal Tax Credit and the extremely successful SREC program in Massachusetts.
Rebates are given out on a first-come first-serve basis, so it’s best to act quickly before the funds run out, as solar rebates continue todecrease every year. A free site evaluation from a reputable installer is the best way to find out how much asystem would cost you and how much you can save with these new rebates.
To reduce the confusing burden of paperwork and ensure that customers receive the maximum incentives available, Sunlight Solar staff handles all of the rebate paperwork in-house.
We are excited that solar energy can continue to be a viable energyoption for homeowners, and we look forward to a continuously robustsolar energy market in Massachusetts!
