NV Energy is providing an incentive for its residential customers, small commercial, nonprofit, school and other public customers to install solar water heaters on their homes and facilities. Residential customers with an electric or gas water heater can qualify for incentives through this program. Non-residential customers can only qualify if they have a gas water heater and are gas customers of NV Energy.
As of May 1, 2012, NV Energy residential electric customers in northern Nevada who own their homes are eligible for a rebate of 50% of the installed cost of the system up to $2,000. Additionally, NV Energy's small business, nonprofit, school and other public gas customers in northern Nevada are eligible for incentives based on the number of therms saved their solar water heaters. Incentives are capped at $7,500 for small businesses and $30,000 for nonprofits, schools and other public entities. NV Energy has a similar program for their residential electric customers in southern Nevada.
Customers interested in participating must first reserve their application before commencing with the installation. NV Energy has a limited number of incentives set aside for each customer class for each year, which will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until funding for that class has been exhausted. More information about funding availability is available on the website above.
