Summary

Note: This program is currently closed to new applications, but local officials are considering a new budget allocation and revised program rules.

The Town of Southampton, NY offers rebates to individuals and commercial entities that install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems designed to produce electricity for on-site use. A flat rebate of $2,500 is available for PV systems of 5 kilowatts (kW) AC or larger. Smaller systems are not eligible to receive a rebate and the applicant must have actually paid the cost of installation of the system.

Systems must be in compliance with all applicable state and local laws and codes. In order to claim the rebate, applicants must submit a certificate of compliance, an electrical certificate, and a paid invoice to the Chief Building Inspector. Commercial applications may require a site-plan review prior to the issuance of a building permit, but such reviews will be done on an expedited basis and all Town fees associated with the review are waived.

The initial budget for the rebate program is $50,000, sufficient to cover 20 rebates. Under the current rules, the program is retroactive to systems installed after January 1, 2006 and set to expire December 31, 2009.
