Renewable Energy incentives funding status

2016 incentive dollars for commercial and residential renewable projects have been fully allocated. You may continue submitting applications for 2016 renewable installations and they will be put on a waitlist. Reservations for current projects expiring or not moving forward will be made available to waitlisted projects in the order they were received. We do not anticipate additional funds will be made available this calendar year. Funding allocations for 2017 Renewable Incentives have not yet been determined.
