ATTENTION!

 

The solar rebate program is very popular and successful. Due to the large volume of rebate applications received the budget approved for FY2008-2009,$5 million, was exhausted. When all of the funding was exhausted for FY2007-2008, the state continued to accept applications, placing the applicants on a waiting list. This list of approved applications has now reached the $5 million mark and will absorb all of the FY2008-2009 funding upon appropriation. The solar rebate checks will begin to be delivered in mid-July.

The rebates checks will be released in quarterly increments. The first quarter of applications received will be sent rebate checks from July 1, 2008 to September 30, 2008. The second quarter of applications received will be sent rebate checks from October 1, 2008 to December 31, 2008. The third quarter of applications received will be sent rebate checks from January 1, 2009 to March 31, 2009. The fourth quarter of applications received will be sent rebate checks from April 1, 2009 to June 30, 2009.

The solar rebate program, created in 2006 by the Florida Renewable Energy Technologies and Energy Efficiency Act, was structured as a four-year program. Any resident of Florida who purchases and installs a new solar energy system from July 1, 2006, through June 30, 2010, is eligible for a rebate on a portion of the purchase price of that solar energy system. While our funding for FY2008-2009 is already exhausted we will continue to accept applications for the next fiscal year. If you apply for the rebate program and your application is approved, you will be placed on a waiting list. If the program is appropriated with funding for FY2009-2010 by the Legislature, your application will be granted funding based on the order it was received. Again, the rebate checks will be dispensed on a quarterly schedule.
