Solar rebates are usually a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the cost to install a solar energy system. Many solar rebates are paid directly to installers, who pass the savings on to homeowners at the time of installation. Others are paid to solar system owners after installation, either as a lump sum or over time.
Solar rebates can be offered by utility companies, state governments, or the solar panel manufacturers themselves. It can be hard to figure out how to find them and whether you’re eligible, so we made this page to guide you to rebates in your state.
