FPL to reopen application period for 2011 solar rebate program

Juno Beach, Fla., Aug. 29, 2011 Florida Power and Light Co. is reopening the application period for its 2011 solar rebate program next week to distribute about $5 million in remaining funds.

Customers who are interested in installing solar systems in their homes and businesses can apply August 30. Rebates will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and funds are expected to run out quickly.

The solar rebate program is designed to help reduce energy consumption and peak demand and is part of a pilot project approved by the Florida Public Service Commission. The application process for the 2011 rebates first opened on Wednesday, June 29, and customers claimed reservations for the available solar photovoltaic funds in less than an hour.

The company is reallocating funding based on strong consumer demand for solar PV funding and less strong demand for residential solar water heating within the FPL service territory during the initial pilot period. Rebates for solar water heating are still available, and interested customers do not need to wait until Aug. 30 to apply for those rebates.

Customers who did not receive reservations in the first round can reapply as long as installation has not begun on their systems.
