Modesto Irrigation District offers a photovoltaic rebate program for all of their electric customers. The peak output capacity of a system must be 1 kW or greater to participate. Systems up to 30 kilowatts (kW) in capacity can receive an up-front capacity-based incentive. Systems greater than 30 kW and up to 1,000 kW (1 MW) can receive a performance-based incentive. The rebate levels will decline over time.
As of August 2012, the capacity-based rebate is $1.00 per installed watt AC, per customer account, not to exceed 50% of total project costs. These rates may be adjusted based on expected performance. As of May 2013, the performance-based incentive is $0.10 per kWh of actual electricity production over a 5-year period. As required by state law, these incentive levels will step down over time. Interested customers should refer to the rebate program packet for complete details.
