Poudre Valley REA - Photovoltaic Rebate Program

February 09, 2016


Note: All program funds are already dispersed for 2014, but applicants can still apply for a rebate for 2015. 

Poudre Valley REA (PVREA) is providing rebates to their residential customers who install photovoltaic (PV) systems on their homes. The consumer agrees to assign all Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) to PVREA for 20 years. Before receiving a rebate, applicants must have an energy audit of their home that includes a blower door test. The audit must be completed by a RESNET or BPI-certified auditor. Recipient’s homes must have minimum insulation levels of R-38 for attics and ceilings, R-13 for walls, and R-10 for footer and foundation insulation.

Poudre Valley REC has limited funding for this program and awards rebates on a first-come, first served basis until the funding is exhausted. Applications for future funding are encouraged and will be placed in a queue in the order received.
