Customers of Taunton Municipal Lighting Plant (TMLP) may be eligible for $2.00/watt rebate on solar photovoltaic (PV) installations. The minimum system size eligible for this rebate is 1 kilowatt (kW) and the maximum size is 2.5 kW. The minimum rebate is therefore $2,000 and the maximum rebate is $5,000. The system must be installed on a single family dwelling residence and the customer must be the owner of the PV system and be current on his/her electric bill. This is a first-come, first-served program with a limited budget, so customers are encouraged to verify funding levels prior to making financial decisions.
