Summary

The Utah State Energy Program (SEP) began accepting applications for photovoltaic (PV), solar water heating, and wind incentives in April 2010. The $3 million in funding allocated to the program was exhausted before the end of 2010. On August 22, 2011 the SEP again began accepting applications for these incentives with an additional $1 million in funding. On October 20, 2011 the SEP added another $200,000 to the program. Incentives will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis while funds are available.

The Utah State Energy Program is using $1 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to provide rebates to homeowners, business owners, nonprofits, local governments and schools purchasing photovoltaic (PV), solar water heating, and wind energy systems. To be eligible for the rebate, homeowners must install the system on their primary residence, and business owners must install the system on commercial property with established business activity.

Participants must first receive a bid from an eligible contractor and submit a Rebate Reservation Application with the Utah State Energy Program (USEP). USEP will review the application for completeness and submit the project to the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) for review. Accepted applicants will receive a confirmation letter and must complete the project and return a rebate application form within nine months of the date of the rebate reservation confirmation letter.
