Modified Program Overview

On April 6, 2016, the Commission issued Order No. 25,878 to modify the Commercial and Industrial Solar Incentive Program.  This program offers incentives for solar energy systems in two eligible project categories.  Category 1 is for solar electric and thermal systems rated less than or equal to 100 kW (AC) or thermal equivalent.  Category 2 is for solar electric systems greater than 100 kW (AC) but less than or equal to 500 kW (AC).  In each category, incentives are limited to 25% of the total project cost if less than the AC incentive payment otherwise calculated.  The program is available to non-residential structures with a commercial electric meter located in New Hampshire. 

The Category 1 (≤100 kW AC) incentive levels for PV systems are as follows:

  • $0.70/watt (lower of AC and DC) for new solar electric facilities (Step 1 application received prior to September 1, 2016);
  • 0.65/watt (lower of AC and DC) for new solar electric facilities (Step 1 application received on or after September 1, 2016); and
  • Expansions to existing solar systems are not eligible. 

The Category 1 (≤100 kW AC equivalent) 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. 

The Category 2 (> 100 kW AC and ≤500 kW AC) incentive level for PV systems is as follows:

  • $0.55 per Watt AC for new electric facilities. 
  • Expansions to existing solar systems are not eligible. 

For complete program details, please refer to Order No. 25,878 and Docket No. 10-212 or contact Liz Nixon, Elizabeth.Nixon@puc.nh.gov or (603) 271-6018.
