Maryland and Pennsylvania residents have a limited time to take advantage of rebate and grant programs that can significantly reduce the cost of going solar:
The Pennsylvania Sunshine Program, which provides rebates to Pennsylvanians installing solar electric systems, has begun placing customers on a waiting list. The Pennsylvania Sunshine Program does not guarantee that those on the waiting will receive the rebate. However, for a limited time, Standard Solar will guarantee the rebate for customers who sign a contract for a photovoltaic system.
The Sunshine rebate is a major financial accelerator for people investing in solar. For example, if you choose an 8kW system from Standard Solar, the guarantee will save you $6,000 off the cost the system in addition to the federal tax credit of 30% of total system cost.
The guarantee on the PA Sunshine Rebate is contingent on funds being paid from the state program. Standard Solar is in contact with the state program’s representative and will discontinue this offer once funds are depleted.
Maryland residents have a bit more time to take advantage of special savings. The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) solar grant currently offers a $1,000 incentive for installing a solar electric system on your home. To further sweeten the deal, Standard Solar will match the MEA solar grant toward the purchase of a qualifying system.
The Standard Solar End of Year Grant Match Program will give you an additional $1,000 cash back on a photovoltaic system, but only until midnight on December 31st, 2011 when the program expires.
