Note: All program funds are already dispersed for 2014, but applicants can still apply for a rebate for 2015.
Poudre Valley REC is providing rebates to their residential customers who install photovoltaic (PV) systems on their homes. Before receiving a rebate, applicants must have an energy audit of their home that includes a blower door test. The audit must be completed by a RESNET or BPI-certified auditor. Recipient’s homes must have minimum insulation levels of R-38 for attics and ceilings, R- 13 for walls, and R-10 for footer and foundation insulation.
Poudre Valley REC has limited funding for this program and awards rebates on a first-come, first served basis until the funding is exhausted. Applications for future funding are encouraged and will be placed in a queue in the order received.
