Due to limited funding for the Solar Support Rebate program, we anticipate holding a lottery in July 2014 to allocate funds. Please check this website in June 2014 for details about how the program will be structured and how to participate. If a BWP customer purchases solar equipment or signs a contract before they have been approved for a rebate, they will be disqualified from participating in the program, as the rebates are intended to be an incentive to purchase solar power. The program remains closed to commercial installations over 30 kilowatts in size. 

Before deciding to install solar power or apply for a rebate, customers are encouraged to read the links to the left carefully. These cover all aspects of the program, including the requirements to interconnect solar with the BWP electric grid. If a customer decides to go solar without a BWP rebate, all the BWP interconnection rules and City of Burbank safety regulations still apply.
