Current Program Overview

On March 8, 2018, the Commission issued Order No. 26,111 to modify the Commercial and Industrial Solar Incentive Program (Program).  This Program has been modified by Commission Order to consolidate the two eligible project categories: Category 1 was previously for solar electric and thermal systems rated less than or equal to 100 kW (AC) or thermal equivalent and Category 2 was previously for solar electric systems greater than 100 kW (AC) but less than or equal to 500 kW (AC).  Incentives are limited to 25% of the total project cost or $50,000 if less than the AC incentive payment otherwise calculated, whichever is less.  The Program is available to non-residential structures with a commercial electric meter located in New Hampshire.

Incentive levels for PV systems are as follows:
•$0.40/watt (lower of AC and DC) for new solar electric facilities (Step 1 application received on or after March 19, 2018); and
•Expansions to existing solar systems are not eligible. 

Incentive levels for solar thermal systems are as follows:
•$0.12/rated or modeled kBtu/year for new solar thermal facilities fifteen collectors in size or fewer;
•$0.07/rated or modeled kBtu/year for new solar thermal facilities greater than fifteen collectors in size; and
•Expansions to existing solar systems are not eligible. 

 

For complete program details, please refer to Order No. 26,111 and Docket No. 10-212 or contact CISolarRebate@puc.nh.gov or (603) 271-2431.
