'''''All funds for Progress Energy Florida's SunSense Solar PV Rebate program have been committed at this time.'''''
Progress Energy Florida (PEF) has allocated $1.9 million per year towards residential photovoltaic (PV) incentives. PEF will accept applications annually from residential customers both wishing to install a PV system and qualifying for a rebate. Reservations for a rebate will be issued on a first-come basis, however a reservation does not guarantee that a rebate will be awarded, only that funding for a rebate is available should the system be installed, meet all requirements and pass inspection.
To qualify for the residential PV program, an applicant must be a Progress Energy Florida (PEF) customer and a homeowner. The applicant must also be the account holder, use the home as a primary residence and own the solar PV system installed on the home. Other requirements include:
*PEF must approve application and conduct an on-site Home Energy Check (HEC) prior to PV system installation
*The proposed PV system must be certified and approved by the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC)
*Systems must be installed by a licensed contractor, meet electric and safety standards
*Participating customers’ systems must be directly connected to the PEF system by following the [https://www.progress-energy.com/company/electricity-system/interconnect/...? PEF interconnection procedures].
Customers with PV systems ranging in size from 2 kW DC to 10 kW DC are eligible to participate and may earn an incentive based on the kW value. Installations of systems system larger than 10 kW are permissible, but the incentive is limited to a maximum of $20,000 per residence. After installation, the PV system must be capable of producing at least 1,000 kWh per kW DC each year.
Once the limit of $1.9 million in rebates is achieved, the application process will be closed. The process will be re-opened again October 1 of each year for systems to be installed the following calendar year.
