The City has posted the draft regulations for the Philadelphia Solar Rebate. The regulations need to be posted for 30 days (until February 2nd). As soon as the Law Department finalizes the regulations, we will open applications for the new Solar Rebate!
Property owners who installed a solar photovoltaic system at their site any time after July 1, 2019 will be eligible to apply for the Solar Rebate of $0.10 per watt for commercial installations and of $0.20 per watt for residential installations (averaging $1,000 for a typical home). The Philadelphia Energy Authority (PEA) will administer the Solar Rebate on behalf of the City and in partnership with the Office of Sustainability. Contact us at SolarRebate@philaenergy.org with any questions or to be added to the Solar Rebate distribution list to receive updates on the program.
