Residential Solar PV Program

 

List Of Eligible Participating Installers Updated 8/10/06

CCEF offers rebates for Connecticut residents who install solar photovoltaic systems on their homes. This program was effective October 1, 2004. The incentives are available only through participating installers that have been designated by CCEF.   Systems may be of any size but must be connected to the electric grid. The program offers an incentive of $5 per Watt (PTC rating) for the first 5kW of system and installation costs, with a maximum rebate of $25,000 per household.   Homes can be one to four family residences.

CCEF has selected a group of professional solar PV installers.   These companies provide consumers with information and details of installing a residential solar PV system. The installers apply for the incentive on behalf of state residents and reduce the cost of the solar PV system by the amount of the rebate. They are responsible for all the paperwork necessary to obtain the incentive from the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund on behalf of state residents. To begin the process of applying for a rebate, contact some of the eligible installers listed in the attachment below.
