Sullivan Solar Power launches the Orange County Solar Program, a countywide solar incentive program providing significant cash incentives in addition to the federal tax credit.
Sullivan Solar Power has launched the Orange County Solar Program, a countywide solar incentive program providing significant cash incentives in addition to the federal tax credit. The initiative’s timing was perfect for local residents, as the statewide California Solar Initiative rebates were recently fully exhausted for residential property owners.
The OC Solar Program is structured into three phases, and as milestones are reached, incentive amounts will drop by tiered amounts — meaning that early adopters of the OC Solar Program will receive the highest incentives, just as with the previous state program. With program incentives currently in phase one, the typical resident who signs up will receive a payment of $2,000, according to Sullivan.
- The first 250,000 watts (approximately 50 homes) = $0.40 per watt up to $2,000
- The second 500,000 watts (approximately 100 homes) = $0.30 per watt up to $1,500
- All remaining participants until December 31, 2014 = $0.20 per watt up to $1,000
Daniel Sullivan, founder and president of Sullivan Solar Power, commented: “Orange County is in the optimal location to shine as a leader in solar technology. This region has a profound opportunity to be a case study to the rest of the nation, and our program is designed to support that vision.”
“With the Orange County Solar Program, homeowners can go solar without spending any money upfront and receive a $2,000 check for doing so,” said Daniel Sullivan, founder and president of Sullivan Solar Power. “How is that for a stimulus plan?” Daniel added.
The program will last through December 31, 2014. A series of free informational luncheons will be taking place throughout the county to cover solar technology, rebates and incentives, and the details of the Orange County Solar Program. The first seminar will be taking place on Saturday, February 1, in the City of San Clemente’s Aquatic Center. More information about the program can be found here.
