Frisco Launches Solar Rebate Program in Partnership With the Governor’s Energy Office
The Town of Frisco is pleased to announce that it has been selected by The Governor’s Energy Office (GEO) and the Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association (CoSEIA) to administer its Solar Rebate Program.
The Solar Rebate Program was created by the Governor’s Energy Office (GEO) in response to the growing demand for renewable energy initiatives to allow homeowners and businesses to harness Colorado’s abundant solar resources. The Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association is administering the program for the GEO. The Program is designed to extend rebates for solar technologies to Colorado residents and businesses throughout the state. The GEO provides matching grants to Program Partners with the goal of developing local solar rebate programs. By partnering with cities, utilities, and non-profit organizations through a matching grant program, the funding for rebates is effectively doubled.
Between February and June 30, 2009, residents that invest in solar hot water (SHW) in Frisco may be eligible for rebates as part of the program. By providing matching funds to a $25,000 grant from the GEO, the Town of Frisco will provide rebates for the installation of solar SHW system. The rebates will allow customers to install solar systems at considerable savings.
With a combination of the GEO rebates and tax credits, Colorado home and business owners can save 50-55% on solar domestic hot water or electric installations. In addition to these savings, these systems can save anywhere from $250-500 per year in energy costs. The Program also helps Colorado achieve its Climate Action Plan carbon reduction goals and increase Colorado’s energy independence.
The Town of Frisco has begun accepting rebate applications, and application will be reviewed and upon approval, Frisco will provide customers with a Rebate Reservation. Customers will have 90 days from the date of the reservation to complete the installation process.
