'''''Note: Of the $1.5 million budgeted for this program annually, $500,000 is reserved for solar water heating, and $1 million is reserved for PV systems. All funds have been committed for Solar PV systems at this time. Tampa Electric is scheduled to reopen the rebate program to new application on October 1, 2013. However, throughout the year, Tampa Electric may make funds available due to unfulfilled customer projects.'''''

Tampa Electric provides financial incentives to customers who install solar-energy systems on their homes and businesses. Customers who install eligible solar water heating systems may receive a rebate of $1,000. Customers who install photovoltaic (PV) systems may receive a rebate of $2 per watt, with a maximum rebate of $20,000. Prior to system installation, program participants must allow Tampa Electric to perform an energy audit on the home or building.

Tampa Electric has budgeted $1.5 million per year for this program from 2011 through 2015. The utility will approve applications every year on a first-come, first-served basis until funding is exhausted. See program web site for more information.
