Residential Solar Rebates


 

PV power is a clean source of energy that can help you save money on your electric bills! Customer-Generators may install systems no larger than 100% of the last 12 months of energy use recorded by the electric meter.

All residential solar installations in the City of Roseville must comply with the Residential Solar Energy Program requirements and complete the Residential Solar Energy Program applications required for interconnection. A signed Approval to Interconnect (Form D) from Roseville Electric must be received by the Customer-Generator and the net meter must be installed prior to operating the PV system.

Projects installed without interconnection approval are subject to being locked off until the required documentation is submitted and the Approval to Interconnect (Form D) is signed by Roseville Electric.

In addition, Roseville Electric's solar rebate program provides incentives to Customer-Generators who install solar systems at their homes. Rebate reservations are highly recommended, as rebates are not guaranteed and funds are limited to first come first served.
