The Commonwealth Solar Hot Water Program offers rebates for solar hot water (also known as solar thermal) systems that serve residential, commercial, non-profit, and publicly owned buildings. MassCEC provides this funding to reduce the upfront cost of installing a solar hot water system. For basic information on solar hot water systems, visit our About Solar Hot Water webpage.
MassCEC has reserved $10 million of funding for the Commonwealth Solar Hot Water program, which began July 2012 and will last until the end of 2016. The first year of the program has reserved $1.5 million in funds for July 2012 through June 2013. The pie chart below shows how much funding is remaining this year.
MassCEC’s solar hot water pilot programs ran from February 2011 through June 30, 2012. As part of the programs, MassCEC provided additional funding to solar hot water system owners to install metering equipment.
