Summary

Jackson Electric Membership Corporation (Jackson EMC), which serves over 185,000 residential customers, offers rebates to those customers who install photovoltaic (PV) systems or solar water-heating systems. In exchange for these incentives, Jackson EMC retains the rights to any renewable energy credits (RECs) associated with the energy production of these systems.

Solar Rebate Program for Homes

Residential customers may qualify for the one-time rebate of $450 per kilowatt (kW) of DC installed, up to 10 kW. In order to qualify, they must select a trained and certified North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) contractor to install the system, which must be certified by the Florida Solar Energy Center. In addition, the customer's system must meet Jackson EMC requirements and be pre-approved for interconnection and net metering.

Solar Water Heater Rebate Program

Members may qualify for the one-time $525 rebate for installation of solar water heaters. In order to qualify, they must select a trained and certified NABCEP contractor to install their system. Jackson EMC maintains a list of pre-approved contractors, and some solar water heater manufacturers' training programs may be allowed instead of NABCEP certification, though this requires pre-approval. The solar water heater system must be certified OG-300 by the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC). In addition, prior to installation, the member must provide a computer model representing estimated performance and must indicate the site address, number of collectors, estimated hot water consumption, estimated average ground water temperature, collector orientation and roof pitch. The performance report must include information on annual solar fraction and estimated monthly solar energy production in kilowatt-hours (kWh). The system must be freeze protected (closed loop or drain back design only) and must have the ability to accurately calculate and store system performance data.
