Mesa Solar Festival
Mesa's Energy Resources Department is launching a new one-year solar pilot program that will provide up to $100,000 in incentives to qualified residents and business owners in its electric service area who install a solar photovoltaic system. Since funding is limited, participants who qualify for the program will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.
Incentives for residential program participants will be limited to $5,000 ($1.00 per watt) for up to five kilowatts (kW). Commercial participants' incentives will be limited to $10,000 (up to 10 kW). In exchange for the incentive payment, the City receives the associated renewable energy credits and environmental benefits. The City will offer a variation of net metering where the utility will buy back energy when the customer produces more solar energy than is consumed.
"The solar pilot program will be a good test to evaluate our community's interest and the economic feasibility of using the sun as an energy source for the future," Energy Resources Department Director Frank McRae said. "While Mesa currently obtains 20 percent of its power from renewable energy sources, we are now explicitly considering the addition of customer produced solar power to our resource portfolio."
By installing a solar photovoltaic system, individuals and businesses can use the sun to reduce their electric bills. Solar photovoltaic systems also help to protect the environment because they provide clean and renewable energy that is virtually free of carbon emissions.
The pilot program begins July 2012 and, subject to available funding, will continue through June 2013. For more information about the solar program visit the City website at: http://www.mesaaz.gov/energy/solarpilotprogram.aspx.
