Residential Solar Investment Program


Help Your Customers Make a Smart Energy Investment in their Homes


The Residential Solar Investment Program offers two incentive structures to help Connecticut homeowners go solar, the EPPB and the PBI.

The Expected Performance-Based Buydown incentive (EPBB) (Rebate) is available to homeowners choosing to purchase a PV system from an Eligible Contractor. Under this model, the Contractor presents the rebate as an upfront cost reduction to the customer and is reimbursed by the Green Bank upon completion of the project.
The Performance-Based Incentive (PBI) is designed to allow homeowners to benefit from solar PV systems for little to no upfront cost. Under this model, an Eligible Third-Party PV System Owner owns the system and enters into a contract with the homeowner. The PBI is paid to the System Owner based on actual performance over the course of 6 years, and is used to reduce the homeowner’s monthly cost.
