Summary:

In March 2009, Snohomish County PUD introduced the Solar Express Program. This program provides rebates to support residential and commercial installations of solar photovoltaics (PV) and solar water heating (SWH). 

This rebate program provides $500 per kilowatt (kW) of installed PV, up to a cap of $2,500 for residential customers and $10,000 for commercial customers. A flat rebate of $500 per system is provided for solar water heating. There is no cap on the number of systems a customer can install; customers can receive this rebate for each system installed.

Interested customers must get a site assessment and bid from an approved installer, and get PUD approval prior to installation.The PUD will conduct a pre- and post-installation inspection. PV systems must be interconnected and have a net metering agreement with the PUD.
