The program is called RCSP which stands for Residential and Commercial Solar Program. If you own a home in Alberta and are looking to install solar panels, you can now receive 30% off your solar panels system cost up to a maximum of $10’000. The $0.75/watt solar rebate is based on the total installed capacity of your project.
Ground-mount or Rooftop residential solar panels systems are limited to 15kWp DC in size, which equals, for example, to 60 panels of 250 Watts each.
At the same time if you are a business or a non-profit organization in Alberta, your solar panels rebate can reach 25% or $500’000, whichever is greater. Solar farms and arrays are limited to 5 MW in size. Rebate value is set at $0.75/watt as well.
In order to qualify for the program, residential solar system must be energized within 180 days and commercial and non-profit within 365 days of the Part I approval date. After completing installation and connecting your solar panels system, you would have to submit your eligible expenses to Energy Efficiency Alberta. Approval and allocation of funds will occur on a first-come, first-serve basis.
