Who Can Qualify for a Solar Rebate?
Any BWP residential or commercial electric customer is eligible to apply for program participation. Rebates are designed to offset a portion of the purchase or lease price of solar PV systems. BWP does not recommend equipment or contractors, nor do we design, evaluate, sell, install or remove PV equipment. Solar thermal systems, those that heat water, are not eligible for the program. Below are the requirements you must meet in order to qualify for a rebate.
One Rebate Per Customer
Solar Installation Must Meet All Requirements
Incentives Are Calculated Based on System Performance
Solar Panel Orientation
Green Attributes or Renewable Energy Credits (RECs)
Energy Efficiency Audit of Building
All customers applying for a solar rebate are required to conduct an energy efficiency audit of the building where the solar system will be installed. A copy of the completed audit recommendations signed by the customer is required for proof of participation.
Burbank residents can get a free energy efficiency audit through BWP's Home Improvement Program.
Businesses with less than 250,000 kWh use annually can get a free energy audit through BWP's Business Bucks program.
