Commercial Solar Thermal Rebate for NCMPA1 Participant Customers
The commercial solar thermal program offers commercial electric customers a rebate for installation of a solar thermal energy system. Eligible customers will receive up to a $450 rebate for each certified solar thermal panel purchased and installed after September 1, 2013.
