Focus on Energy offers rebates for residential renewable energy systems including geothermal heat pumps, solar electric (PV), and solar hot water heaters. Rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis while funds are available.
Once receiving a confirmation, the equipment must be installed within 10 weeks. A final Reward Application must be submitted after the installation. For the 2014 program, all equipment must be purchased and installed between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014, and Reward Applications must also be received by Focus on Energy by January 31, 2015, or 30 days after the date of installation, whichever comes first. All systems must have at least a 5-year warranty.
The solar electric (PV) rebate is $600/kW DC rated capacity. All systems must be at least 0.5 kW in size and listed on the Qualified Module or Inverter list. The rated capacity must be determined by the PV USA Test Conditions value on the associated list. The system must be installed within 45 degrees of due south and with a panel tilt between 10-50 degrees. Obstacle shading must be less than 10% as measured by an industry accepted tool. The maximum reward is $2,400.
The solar water heater rebate is $0.35/kWh saved or $6/Therm saved. All systems must be compliant with the Solar Rating Certificate Council (SRCC) OG-300 installation schematics and equipment inventory requirements. Collectors must be installed within 90 degrees of due south and have an obstacle shading of less than 20% as measured by an industry acceptable tool. The system must be used only to heat domestic hot water. The maximum reward is $1,200.
Geothermal rebates are set at $600/unit. All systems must have an Energy Efficiency Ratio of 15 or more, a Coefficient of Performance of 3.5 or more, and must be AHRI-rated or a similar independent rating. Installations must follow ACCA Standard 5 Quality Installation standards. The system must be the primary heating and cooling source for the home.
