Solar Thermal Rebate Program

The last round of the Solar Thermal Rebate Program ended in February 2009. The following program details are provided for informational purposes only.

 

RESIDENTIAL SOLAR DOMESTIC HOT WATER (SDHW): DETAILS & CONDITIONS

 

Residential Systems:
1.
The residence must be in the program partner’s territory and the homeowner must be a Colorado resident. The homeowner does not need to occupy the residence.
2. Homeowners interested in the solar rebate must obtain an energy audit on the house.

 

System & Installation Requirements:
1.
Only new systems installed after the local program partners launch date are eligible for the rebate (February 2, 2009).
2. Systems must be installed within 90 days of receipt of the Rebate Reservation Confirmation.
3. All systems must be installed by solar contractors pre-approved by the GEO and CoSEIA.
4. A competitive bidding process must be completed for commercial installations.
5. Homeowner-installed systems do not qualify for a rebate through this program.
6. Systems must produce no less than 80% of optimum production based on system orientation.
7. All SHW systems must carry a two-year warranty from the installer.
8. Only new equipment qualifies for the rebate.

 

Legal Disclaimer: The Colorado Solar Energy Industries Association (CoSEIA) is not a manufacturer, supplier or guarantor of the PV system or installers, and CoSEIA, whether by making available a list of installers and equipment sources or otherwise, has not made and makes no representations or warranties of any nature, directly or indirectly, express or implied, as to performance of the installer or reliability, performance, durability, condition or quality of the PV system selected and purchased. For on-site solar PV system, up to and including 3kW, the grant program payment may be adjusted down, based on the calculation of expected kWh output as compared with an optimally oriented, fixed (i.e., non-tracking) system at the customer’s location, but only if the calculated system output differs from the optimally oriented system output by more than 10 percent. For on-site solar thermal systems, either SDHW, or heating systems, the grant program payment may be adjusted down, based on the calculation of expected output as compared with an optimally oriented, fixed (i.e., non-tracking) system at the customer’s location, but only if the calculated system output differs from the optimally oriented system output by more than 20 percent.
