Commercial and Multifamily CSI-Thermal Rebates
Multifamily and commercial solar water heating and solar pool systems also receive a one-time payment after the system has been installed and inspected. Rebates are calculated based on expected performance for the specific SWH system. Program calculators are publicly available and embedded into the application database.
Multifamily and commercial systems that involve other end uses (e.g., process heat) will receive a performance-based incentive that is paid based on metered data over two years.
Once the rebate application is complete and submitted online through an automated database, we proceed with the following application processing. For multifamily and commercial properties, applications are approved in a two-step process. Once a contract agreement has been signed, the contractor may submit an application to reserve rebate funding for the project. This application will be reviewed, and if approved, the contractor will have 18 months to complete the project and submit the Incentive Claim Package before the reserved rebate funding is released. Once installation is complete, the contractor will have the opportunity to edit the project information to reflect the “as-built” specs before submitting for final program review.
