Eligible solar projects must be located at residential, commercial, public or other private property in Greenfield and have sufficient solar exposure to participate -- the solar installer can determine this.
For roof installations:
- The roof should be in good condition and be structurally able to accommodate the additional load of the solar panels.
- Solar panels cannot be installed on a slate roof.
For ground mounted systems:
- If a roof is not suitable for solar panels, it may be feasible to install a ground mounted solar electric system. The ground mounted system can be situated in the sunniest spot on the property.
In order to qualify for the state rebate:
- Systems need to produce 80% or more of the electricity that would be produced by an ideally oriented, unshaded system.
Systems must be no larger than 15 kW to receive the state rebate.
