$7.25 Million in New Funding for Pennsylvania’s Sunshine Solar Program

On January 29, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection issued a press release that it has received $7.25 million in funding from the Commonwealth Financing Authority to complete the agency’s Sunshine Solar Program. The program offers rebates up to a maximum of 35 percent of the costs of project design, installation and equipment for  solar photovoltaic (PV) projects and solar thermal projects installed in Pennsylvania. The program had been stalled since August 2011 because the demand exceeded available funds.   In the press release the Department’s Secretary commented that  “the funding is enough to provide rebates for all projects currently on the waiting list and an estimated 400 additional installations this year.”  The announcement also clarifies that projects that had previously requested rebate money must be completed by June 1, 2013. The remaining funds will be disbursed on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Department will host a webinar on Feb. 12 from 2 to 3 p.m. to provide more details. Link to register for the event – https://copa.webex.com/copa/onstage/g.php?t=a&d=647494695.
