Florida residents, developers, government agencies, utilities, and other businesses installing photovoltaic (PV) systems connected to their local utility may qualify for the Florida Solar Energy Centerâ€™s (FSEC) PV rebate. The program was funded at $525,000 by the Florida Energy Office/Department of Community Affairs. The program was slated to continue through March 31, 2002, or until program funds were exhausted. In mid-March 2002, the FSEC Rebate Program Manager reported that funds had been exhausted. It is currently unclear whether additional program funding will become available. Rebates of $4 per watt are available based on the total system output using the manufacturer or FSEC rating. All systems must have an output of at least 1 kW. Residential applicants can qualify for a maximum rebate of $16,000. Additional rebates of $2,000 are available to builders and developers who install systems on model homes. Commercial applicants may qualify for a maximum rebate of $40,000. Steps for qualifying for a PV rebate can be found on FSECâ€™s web site. In order to receive a rebate, applicants must: - Submit a copy of the PV equipment invoice to FSEC. - Submit system design to FSEC for review and approval prior to installation if system design differs from those on FSECâ€™s web site. - Use a licensed solar or electrical installer approved by FSEC. - Install PV system within 6 months of submitting the application to FSEC. - Comply with all electrical and building codes, as well as utility interconnection requirements.
