The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) has unveiled a new rebate program to help residents finance solar hot water projects. Beginning in early February, MassCEC will begin accepting applications for a pilot version of the Commonwealth Solar Hot Water program, which is designed to help Massachusetts residents adopt solar thermal water heating technology.

Rebates to qualifying Massachusetts residents will be awarded through a non-competitive application process for the installation of solar hot water projects by professional, licensed contractors.

To qualify, a resident and project site must be an electric customer of NSTAR, National Grid, Unitil or Western Massachusetts Electric Co., or of a municipal power company that participates in MassCEC's Renewable Energy Trust Fund. Rebates will be based on project size and are expected to amount to approximately $1,000 per system for a typical residential solar hot water system for a four- to five-person household, with additional rebates available for system components manufactured in Massachusetts, MassCEC says.
