Business Customer Service

'''''Progress Energy Florida will begin accepting applications at 10:00 a.m. October 1, 2012, for customers to apply for the 2013 rebates.'''''

In March 2011, Progress Energy Florida began offering incentives to commercial customers who install photovoltaic (PV) systems. Incentive rates are based on a tiered structure:

* $2.00/watt for the first 10 kilowatts (kW)
* $1.50/watt for 11 kW to 50 kW
* $1.00/watt for 51 kW to 100 kW

Systems may be larger than 100 kW, but incentives only apply to the first 100 kW of the system, with a maximum total incentive of $130,000 per customer. All systems must be at least 2 kW in capacity and certified by the Florida Solar Energy Center. In addition, all systems must be installed by a licensed contractor and connected to Progress Energy Florida's grid.
