If you live in Ipswich, you are eligible to receive a large rebate on solar energy for your home! The Ipswich Municipal Light Department offers one of the best solar energy rebates in Massachusetts through a program called HELPS PV.
This program provides a rebate of up to $10,000 for each grid-tied installation of a solar photovoltaic system. The rebate provides up to $3.00 per watt of PV installed. Customers will receive an additional 50 cents per watt if a component of the installation is made in Massachusetts. Sunlight Solar helps customers meet these requirements by using Solectria inverters, which are manufactured in Lawrence, MA.
This rebate significantly cuts down the upfront cost of a solar installation, which has typically been the largest obstacle for homeowners interested in solar. Combined with the 30% Federal Tax Credit, $1,000 State Tax Credit, and Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) income, customers are looking at a very quick return on investment. Not to mention the yearly energy cost savings!
Sunlight Solar hosted a seminar in Ipswich last week to educate residents about solar energy options and Ipswich incentives. For information about rebates and solar energy in general, feel free to contact us.
