Solar Electric Rebate Program

A solar panel installation in Miltonvale Park, PEI
Solar Electric Rebate Program applications are available starting August 7, 2019.

efficiencyPEI's Solar Electric Rebate Program provides incentives for Island homeowners, farms and businesses to install solar PV panels.

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) is a technology that converts sunlight into electricity. The use of solar energy can lower energy bills for Islanders, working hand-in-hand with other efficiency upgrades.

Solar incentives will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by over 500 tonnes annually and create around 20 spin-off jobs in our renewable energy sector. 
 

efficiencyPEI's solar incentives make solar power more affordable than ever.
The program provides the following incentives:

  • $1,000/kilowatt installed for homes
  • $350/kilowatt installed for businesses and farms 
  • Up to 40% of installed costs - up to $10,000

Financing is available through Finance PEI.

To be eligible for solar rebates, approval is required from efficiencyPEI prior to installing equipment.
We encourage any Islander who has an interest in solar or renewable energy to contact efficiencyPEI to learn more. We are happy to discuss program details and aid with the application process.
