Solar Rebates in Nevada, Update

By Matt Turville, HelioPower Solar Consultant in Nevada

On February 17 I posted on overview of the SolarGenerations solar rebate program status here in Nevada.  This week NV Energy circulated an update, setting March 24 as the date they will begin taking rebate reservations for SolarGenerations, with applications being taken then throughout the year. Applications will be accepted on a first come first served basis and reservations will be issued from available incentive steps. Incentive steps correspond to program years and have declining incentive values. Example:

Step 1
Corresponds to Program Year 2010/11
Rebate per Watt Installed
Residential – $2.30
Small Business – $2.30
Public Building – $5.00
Schools – $5.00

Step 2
Corresponds to Program Year 2011/12
Rebate per Watt Installed
Residential – $2.10
Small Business – $2.10
Public Building – $4.90
Schools – $4.90

Step 3
Corresponds to Program Year 2012/13
Rebate per Watt Installed
Residential – $1.90
Small Business – $1.90
Public Building – $4.80
Schools – $4.80

Pending the approval by the Commission of NV Energy’s Annual Plan, the maximum incentives per meter per step will also increase to the following kilowatt levels:
• Residential from 5kW to10kW
• Small Business from 30kW to 50kW
• Public and Other Property from 50kW to 100kW.   
• School applicants may apply for 50 kW per meter or up to a maximum 100 kW per meter if the applicant applies to the Commission for approval of capacity greater than 50 kW within 10 calendar days of submitting the application.

If you are interested in going solar or even thinking about it, please give me a call with your questions.  HelioPower will provide you with a free solar pre-site of your home or business and an estimate for your solar power system in Nevada.
