Maine PUC – Solar Energy Rebate Program

Augusta, Maine [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The Maine Public Utilities Commission’s ruling from last July, which became effective last September, initiated a rulemaking to develop rules for a solar energy rebate program. The program was created by legislation initiated by Governor Baldacci. Under the law, certain solar energy systems installed by qualified installers and installed after July 1, 2005, will be eligible for rebates to help reduce system cost. Full text of the law and FAQs can be found on the Commission’s State Energy Program website (use links below).
