Thinking about solar?....We can help!
More than 700 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 5 cents per watt, up to a maximum system size of 50 kW. The incentive cap is $2,500 for residential and 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 Steve Bouman, Energy Management Specialist. “We recommend getting more than one estimate and also using the resources of the Arizona Registrar of Contractors website, www.azroc.gov.
“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.

MEC's purchased power portfolio includes approximately 16% renewable energy resources. We support renewable energy as one of our wholesale purchased power resources when it is cost-effective and does not adversely affect reliability.
Mohave Electric Cooperative's "Solar Initiative for the Community" has funded 39 solar projects at schools, fire stations, government buildings, and non-profit facilities throughout our service territory. The program is intended to help lower the operating cost for entities that are primarily tax-funded, which benefits our members collectively as taxpayers.
