Liberty Utilities launches solar incentive program
Eligible Liberty Utilities customers can qualify for cash incentives that help offset the cost of installing solar panels on their home or small business, the company announced this week.
The utility’s Solar Incentive Program (SIP) was approved by the California Public Utilities Commission earlier this month, according to Liberty. Information and a link to the online application is available at http://www.libertyutilities.com. Select the “Smart Energy Use” link at the top to find the SIP link.
“Our customers live in some of the most pristine areas of the country, and they want to do their part in reducing their carbon footprint on our planet,” Travis Johnson, vice president of operations, said in a press release. “Our new solar incentive program is just another way customers can use energy wisely to reduce both costs and environmental impact.”
Key aspects of the program include:
Customer must be either residential (D1), small commercial (A1) or classified as a school (either public or private).
Customers must complete an online application and be approved for the program before they install their solar system.
Approved customer applications are eligible for a one-time incentive payment available on a first come, first serve basis to help offset their installation costs.
Customers will be put on the Net Metering Tariff when their systems are operational.
Interested customers are encouraged to apply early as both cash incentives and allowable energy capacity is limited, per the CPUC’s approval.
“Liberty Utilities is committed to working with our customers to reduce carbon emissions,” added Johnson. “Earlier this year our new 50 MW Luning Solar Center came on line providing 25 percent of our customers’ energy needs.”
