Banning Electric Department - Solar Support Program

May 19, 2010


The City of Banning Electric Department provides their commercial and residential customers with rebates for the purchase and installation of photovoltaic (PV) systems. The rebate is $3.46 per watt and can not exceed 50% of the total system cost which includes photovoltaic cells, modules, mounting or tracking structures, wiring, inverters, and utility required interconnection equipment. Applicants must complete an Interconnection Agreement for net metering with the City of Banning Electric Department prior to final connection to the grid and before any incentive can be paid. Rebates are paid on a first come first served basis until funding is exhausted, therefore it is recommended that the customer call the City of Banning Public Benefits Department for an update on the Solar Support Program's funding status.
