Florida Power and Light Offers Solar Rebate Programs

Starting this year, FPL is offering rebates to customers who install photovoltaic (PV) and solar water heating systems in their homes and businesses.

It is advisable to have your contractor already ready to go and make sure that the system to be installed meets the requirements.

Residential Customers

Residential customers may receive a rebate of $1,000 for installing new solar water heating systems, and up to $20,000 for installing photovoltaic (PV) system and interconnecting to FPL’s grid. Due to strong customer interest, the first round of 2011 rebate funds for this program have been reserved. If any unallocated funds remain after the first round of rebate reservations is processed, FPL may reopen the application process on Aug. 30, 2011.

Business Customers

Business customers may receive rebates up to $50,000 per site for installing a new solar water heating system and up to $50,000 per site for installing a PV system and interconnecting to FPL’s grid. Due to strong customer interest, the first round of 2011 rebate funds for this program have been reserved. If any unallocated funds remain after the first round of rebate reservations is processed, FPL may reopen the application process on Aug. 30, 2011.

Applicants who do not receive a rebate for 2011 can apply for a 2012 rebate beginning in October of this year.
