The Florida Power and Light (FPL) Sun Funds program offers rebates to its residential customers of $1.50 per watt for photovoltaic (PV) systems installed after December 1, 2007. Sun Funds are available on a first come, first served basis and will be distributed until 100 kilowatts (kW) of new solar electric capacity is awarded. Applicants must purchase and install the PV system through a certified licensed solar electric contractor.
To be eligible for the rebate, the applicant must first qualify for state rebates* offered by the Florida Energy Office (FEO). A completed application may be submitted to FPL Sun Funds anytime after purchasing a PV system, but no later than 30 days after receiving a state rebate. Sun Funds rebates will be issued to qualified applicants upon confirmation that their application for a state rebate has been accepted by FEO, and as long as Sun Funds money is still available. See the program website for more information.
