Solar Energy Program

Last updated: 28 March 2019
The Solar Energy Program is aimed at customers who would like to displace their own energy needs with solar energy.

The solar PV incentive is available to all residential, commercial, and industrial customers, under the following conditions:
$1 per watt installed (as per the DC rating of the solar PV system);
Minimum size is 1 kW, maximum 200 kW;

The incentive is paid at the end of the project, once the PV system is installed and passes inspection.
It will be limited by the annual electrical load displacement requirement of the site, based on a two year average annual electrical consumption.
A solar company or contractor can help with sizing the system, determine if solar PV suits the building, give quotes, and estimate expected payback periods.
Residential loan
Residential customers can apply for solar photovoltaic (PV) technology through Residential Earth Power Loan under the following conditions:
a 4.9 per cent interest rate;
maximum $30,000 financing;
based on $3 per watt installed (as per the DC rating of the solar PV system).
