Go solar in PEI and save with up to $15,000 in rebates

Solar technology can be a profitable option in terms of renewable energy generation, reducing grid dependence, and safeguarding your home from periods of blackouts. It is encouraging to note that Canada is rapidly adapting solar energy and currently PEI is ranked the #2 province in the country for installing solar power systems. PEI is also one of the best provinces for providing cash rebates and interest-free loans, making it one of the most affordable provinces in Canada to go solar. Go solar in PEI and save with up to $15,000 in rebates.

Solar Electric Rebate Program

The Solar Electric Rebate Program is administered by the province of PEI, making solar power more affordable by providing attractive incentives to all homeowners in PEI. Furthermore, it can help reduce greenhouse emissions by over 500 tons annually and create approximately 20 jobs in PEI’s renewable energy sector!

Incentives:

Residential rebate amount:

  • $1,000/kW installed, up to 40% a maximum of $10,000

Commercial Rebate Amount:

  • $350/kW installed, up to a maximum of $10,000

Eligibility

The applicant must be the legal property owner, business owner, and/or a farmer.

Eligible buildings include:

  • A residential property, no more than three stories high, with a footprint smaller than 600 m²
  • A single-family, detached, side-by-side, row house or apartment building.
  • A manufactured or mobile home with a permanent electrical utility connection.

Any building that is found to be structurally unsound during an inspection will automatically be ineligible for the program. At Solar X, site inspections are scheduled with experienced installers who analyze the roof and the site conditions thoroughly and determine their condition and suitability before proceeding with the installation.

Requirements:

It must be ensured that the solar PV system is eligible for net metering. Prince Edward Island’s Net Metering Policy falls in the “good” category it allows for systems up to 100 kW in size to be connected to the grid and credits can be carried forward month-to-month.

Stacking the rebate

Another key benefit to going solar in Prince Edward Island is the ability to stack the PEI and Greener Homes rebates, totaling up to $15,000! Greener Homes Rebate is a federal rebate program that allows homeowners to get $1000 per kW to a maximum of $5000. Click this link for more information on the Greener Homes Rebate Program.
