Florida Power & Light is the reopening of its solar incentive program may 3. But if you are in the service area of FPL, and you want to install solar hot water or photovoltaic energy, might want to start working on your application now. After the last three times greater company of services of the State offered to solar incentives, PV incentives were caught up almost instantly.
Maybe the rich nature of the benefits is to blame for the moment rapid compliance. According to the residents of the program an incentive of $2,000 per kilowatt of the DC output rating of a photovoltaic system with a limit of $20,000. Companies requesting the incentive can receive the same discount for systems up to 10 kilowatts, the level of reimbursement falls to US $1.50 per watt for systems between 10 kW and up to 25 kilowatts. Larger systems the size may be eligible for a refund of $1 per watt. Business incentives with multiple locations they can receive a total of up to $150,000 in reimbursements per year of funding, the FPL, he said.
On the other hand perhaps it is the amount of funds available. In this round of incentives, FPL is offering US $3.3 million in incentives on a first come, first served. It is part of the largest planned offer of $15.5 million in solar rebates utility by 2012.
The first round of cuts by the year 2012 was offered in fact at the end of October 2011. At that time was offered $4 million in refunds. "[The US $4 million, only] $500,000 will be transferred to the period of discount solar second of the first reduction of cancelled reservations", said Marie Bertot FPL spokesman.
Previous tranches of funding have helped many clients of the FPL solar energy. "We have more than 1,700 customers who operate in distributed generation," said Bertot. "We are very happy of this program has received the client's interest."
Although things have gone long on the side of the equation, PV, solar water heater discounts have not been received so warmly. The residential solar water heater discount is still open in the last round of funding, said Bertot. By virtue of that incentive, the owners may qualify for a refund of $1,000 to install a heater solar hot water which can reduce the invoice of a House to heat the water up to 85 percent.
