Rebates for NH Small Wind and Solar Panels

Thinking of a residential renewable energy system, installing small wind or solar photovoltaic panels? Looking for some added financial incentives? The Sustainable Energy Division of the NH Public Utilities Commission has put together a draft application that would help homeowners with some of the cost, by providing a one-time rebate of no more than $6,000 or 50% of the system cost, whichever is less. The rebate would apply to installed systems that have a peak generating capacity of less than 5 kilowatts.

According to a Concord Monitor article (State offers windmill, solar panel incentive – April 23, 2003), “The money would come from the Renewable Energy Fund, created by a program that requires utilities to purchase or produce renewable energy as a percentage of what they sell. If they can’t comply, they pay into the fund. Director Jack Ruderman said he hopes to begin taking applications for rebates by July 1.”
