Cash rebates available for solar projects by customers in California
Sierra Pacific Power Co. will offer cash rebates to its residential customers in California who install solar-power generating technology.
Beginning 10 a.m. Monday, Sierra Pacific will begin accepting applications on its Web site at http://www.solargenerations.com.
The power generator will accept applications on a first-come, first-serve basis for 15 days. The cutoff for applications is July 31. The projects approved for rebate must be completed by Dec. 31.
Senior program manager John Hargrove said that no more than six applications will be accepted in this new program for California.
“It’s a limiting number no question about it,” Hargrove said. “But this is a very expensive thing to do.”
Sierra Pacific serves the Lake Tahoe area of California, as well as the communities of Portola, Loyalton, Coleville, Walker and Markleeville.
The rebate will be a maximum of $15,000 per household and could be less depending on the amount of electricity the customer can produce.
Customers can learn more about the program by calling (866) 786-3823 or e-mail info@SolarGenerations.com.
