What is a Solar Incentive?

A solar incentive is a government funded program that may offset the cost of a solar energy system. The purpose is to encourage solar system adoption across residential and commerical properties.

Available programs may vary by state. In Rhode Island, a common solar incentive is the Renewable Energy Fund (REF) Program. This program is available to home and business owners who install solar panels and is essentially a rebate on the initial cost of the system. Massachusetts and Rhode Island offer a ConnectedSolutions incentive which rebates the installation of solar batteries.

Solar incentives are always changing so it’s important to work with a solar company who will inform you of all your options.
