Nevada residential gas customers who want to use solar energy to heat their homes, along with small businesses, schools and public buildings, are eligible to participate in a new rebate program from NV Energy. Residential and small-business customers can apply for a 30% rebate, while schools and public buildings can apply for a 50% rebate.
Rebates amounts are as follows:
- Residential: $14.50 per therm or the lesser of 30% of the system cost up to $3,000.
- Small businesses: $14.50 per therm or the lesser of 30% of the system cost up to $7,500,
- Schools: $19 per therm or the lesser of 50% of the system cost up to $30,000.
- Public buildings: $19 per therm or the lesser of 50% of the system cost up to $30,000.
“This program provides an opportunity for Nevada residents to add a renewable energy component to the heating systems for their homes and businesses,” said John Hargrove, manager of energy efficiency and conservation for NV Energy.
