Summary

With funding from The Sierra Club, Green Energy Ohio (GEO) is offering rebates on residential properties in Ohio for solar water heating systems purchased after April 1, 2009. The rebates are based on the projected energy output from the solar collectors and are calculated at $30 per kBtu/day (based on SRCC rating for "Clear Day/C Interval"). The maximum amount is $2,400 per applicant.

There are two parts to the application. PART I of the application collects information on the applicant, the installer (which must be from a list of GEO-approved installers), proposed equipment and system installation, and requires a solar site analysis report and site sketch. Upon successful review, the GEO will issue a rebate reservation number and the applicant has six months to complete the system installation.

After the solar water heating system is installed, the applicant submits PART II of the application and required documentation, including an inspection certification checklist, itemized paid invoices, copies of passed code enforcement inspections, as well as a digital photo of the solar thermal system. GEO may conduct a final inspection before issuing the rebate.
