Approved by Nantucket Board of Selectmen: May 24, 2017
Program Effective Launch Date: July 1, 2017
In July 2017, the Town of Nantucket launched a "first-of-its-kind" local solar rebate program intended to stimulate the adoption of solar energy systems on primary, residential properties located on Nantucket. Rebates of up to $4,000 are provided to cover a portion of the costs of successfully-installed solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, making ownership more affordable for local residents.
This program is intended to provide a number of key community benefits:
The Solar Rebate Program is funded through an extra 1/10th ¢ per kilowatt hour (kWh) charge that is included in the Nantucket PowerChoice supply rate. The solar "adder" equates to 80¢ per-month for an average resident using 800kWh/month.
The rebates are available on a first come, first served basis as funds are available.
