Participating homes also incorporate roof-top solar technology, which will be rewarded with a $2/watt incentive for systems 10 kW or less. Systems larger than 10 kW must abide by the rebate schedule in Roseville's Solar Electric Program Handbook.

To be eligible, the dwelling must be either a single family detached or single family attached unit of any number of stories and on a utility residential rate.
