UTILITY CASH REBATE:
You may qualify to receive cash rebates offered to encourage you to install a solar panel system. Rebates may be available from your state, municipality, utility company, and/or other non-government organizations that want to promote solar energy system installations.
Rebates are generally available for a limited time. After you install your solar energy system, you submit your rebate for which you will receive cash. This can help to further reduce your system costs by 10%–20%.
Most installers will handle the paperwork involved with rebates for you. They’ll reduce the amount you owe them by the rebate amount and then submit and collect the rebate themselves, making it much more convenient for you.
