News from the NH Solar Energy Association (NHSEA) regarding the Rebate program (not the Renewable Energy Credit program):
“An important announcement regarding the Residential Solar Rebate Program and the Commercial and Industrial Solar Rebate Program was recently released by the NH Public Utilities Commission. Both rebate programs are currently CLOSED, not to re-open before September 1st, 2017. Neither program is accepting any applications at this time, not even for a wait list.
The Residential Program currently has a wait list of $500,000, and the C&I Program current has a wait list of $1 million. Estimated Alternative Compliance Payments into the Renewable Energy Fund, which provides program funding, is expected to be $3.6 million, over a million dollars less than last year. PUC staff are currently in the process of allocating this funding.
Residential Rebate applications received after June 30th, 2017 will be returned, and C&I Rebate applications received after July 13th will be returned. NHSEA and NHCTC will keep you updated with program announcements and re-opening.”
