Turlock Irrigation District

'''''Note: The Non-Residential Solar Rebate Program is fully subscribed. Applications received will be placed on a waitlist and will only be eligible for a rebate if a pending project is cancelled.'''''

Turlock Irrigation District (TID) offers an incentive program to their customers who install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. In keeping with the terms of the [ California Solar Initiative], the incentive payment levels will decline over the life of the program in 10 steps as certain MW levels of PV systems are installed within the District. As of September 2013, the residential incentive is on the sixth step at $1.17 per watt AC of installed capacity, and the commercial program is fully subscribed. Residential systems 30 kW or larger will receive a performance-based incentive (PBI) for the actual electricity produced by the system. PBI payments are made monthly for a period of 5 years.

All existing customers will be required to have an energy efficiency audit conducted for their home or business as part of the PV reservation. This audit will be provided by TID.

Consult the program website above for the current rebate level.
