Sunwatts Renewable Energy Incentive Program
Thinking about solar?....We can help!
More than 300 members have already taken advantage of Arizona’s plentiful sunshine and Mohave Electric’s SunWatts Renewable Energy Incentive Program. Rebate funds are available for residential and small commercial members that install photovoltaic (solar), wind, or solar water heating systems at their home or business.
Incentives for residential and small commercial photovoltaic and wind systems are 20 cents per watt, up to a maximum system size of 50 kW. The incentive cap is $3,000 for residential and $5,000 for small commercial. Leased systems are not eligible for incentives.
“Members have the flexibility of selecting a solar installer to help them choose the size and type of system that fits their needs,” said Peggy Gillman, Manager of Public Affairs and Energy Services. “We recommend getting more than one estimate and also using the resources of the Arizona Registrar of Contractors website, www.azroc.gov.”
Steve Bouman, MEC’s Energy Management Specialist explained, “It’s important to remember that in order to receive your SunWatts rebate you need to submit your reservation and application before the work begins. All of the forms are on our website, or call for an appointment and I will walk you through the process.”
For an appointment with Steve Bouman, call 928.763.1100.
Mohave Electric’s renewable energy plan, as approved by the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC), provides the funding for SunWatts rebates from the Renewable Energy Standard Tariff (REST), a surcharge on member bills mandated by the ACC.
