Naperville Electric Utility Offers Solar Rebates for Homeowners

Naperville, IL — The City of Naperville Electric Utility is offering up to a $1,000 rebate to homeowners who install either a roof-mounted solar energy system or a solar water heating system. The rebates are for projects that are installed between October 2019 and December 2020.

The rebate recipient must be a residential Naperville Electric Utility customer and the owner of the single-family home. The total project cost excludes batteries and system monitoring equipment. Applicants must install, own and maintain the solar installation.

The applicant must be a contributor to the Renewable Energy Program at the time the rebate application is submitted at a minimum of $5 per month. The rebate is limited to one per residential customer account. After approval, the homeowner will receive the rebate as a check.

The rebates are funded by the Naperville Renewable Energy Program, which was established in 2004 as a way for Naperville Electric Utility customers to purchase renewable energy from renewable energy resources in Illinois. The program expanded in 2012 to also fund renewable energy projects in Naperville for non-residential customers in the form of grants. More than 2,900 residents and businesses make voluntary contributions to the program every month on their utility bills.

For more information and for the general terms and conditions, an application form is available on the City’s website /solar-panel-guidelines.
