On July 22, 2014 the Burbank City Council approved the reopening of the Solar Support Rebate Program for fiscal year 2014-15.  Due to limited available rebate funding, a lottery will held and lottery applications accepted throughout the month of August 2014.  All eligible applicants will have an equal chance to win a rebate reservation.  60 residential and 15 small commercial applications can be funded.  Small commercial installations must be less than 30 kW CEC AC in capacity. 

Applications must be postmarked or delivered to the BWP lobby conservation desk before 5 PM August 29th.  A lottery drawing will be held on September 8th and applicants will be notified of their rebate status by September 12th.  For lottery eligibility guidelines and a copy of the application form, please click here.
