Summary:

IID accepted applications for the 2013 PV Solutions Program from Jan. 2, 2013 – Jan. 31, 2013. Winners were determined via lottery. The program is now closed for the remainder of 2013, but another funding round is expected in 2014. 

Through the PV Solutions Rebate Program, Imperial Irrigation District (IID) provides rebates to its residential and commercial customers who install grid-tied photovoltaic systems. Systems less than 30 kilowatts (kW) can receive an upfront incentive based on the expected performance of the system. For 2013 the expected performance based incentive is $1.95 per watt, but may be reduced based on expected performance. 

Systems 30 kW or larger will receive a performance based incentive. System owners will receive payments over a 5 year period based on the actual output of their system. The performance based incentive for systems installed in 2013 is $0.18 per kilowatt-hour (kWh). Systems up to 1 megawatt (MW) can participate in the program, but commercial systems over 300 kW and government/non-profit systems over 400 kW will receive a prorated incentive. These payments will be prorated based on the ratio of 300 kW or 400 kW to the size of the site. For example, an 800 kW system owned by a non-profit will receive a payments based on half of the system's output. Incentive payments are capped at $550,000 for the 5-year period ($110,000/year).
