$3 M Solar Rebate Awarded by PG&E

State and local dignitaries participated in Chico, California’s ceremony marking the one-year anniversary of its 1.1-megawatt (MW) ground-mounted solar tracking facility at the City’s Water Pollution Control Plant.

It is the city’s second solar facility and the largest municipal solar array in California. The City of Chico has been an EPA Green Power Partner (in the Leadership Club) since 2004. During the dedication, PG&E presented the City with a solar rebate check for $3,813,791, the largest solar rebate ever awarded by PG&E. PG&E also provided a $351,640 rebate to the City of Chico in 2004 for solar panels atop a municipal parking structure. To date, PG&E has paid more than $190 million in customer rebates through the self-generation incentive program, which provides rebates for onsite electric generating systems using either solar, wind turbines, fuel cells, or micro turbine or internal combustion engine cogeneration systems. “We are very appreciative to have helped the City of Chico deploy 1.2 megawatts of clean, reliable, emissions-free solar power on their City-owned and operated properties,” said PowerLight President Dan Shugar. “In doing so, Chico has distinguished itself as a model municipality for using solar power to reduce operating costs and hedge volatile power pricing with an environmentally preferred solution.”
