Solar companies concerned with Alberta rebate program uncertainty

Alberta solar companies are beginning to voice their concerns over a potential backlog of applications for Alberta’s solar rebate program.

The program, called the Residential and Commercial Solar Program, was introduced by the NDP government as part of its Climate Leadership Plan.

Funded by the provincial carbon tax, the program provides a 30 percent rebate on solar installation costs for homeowners; the rebate covers 25 percent of installation costs for businesses and non-profits, up to $500,000.
