Countywide Solar Program Launched In San Diego To Offer Incentives Greater Than State Rebate

With the potential of developing the nation’s largest collective deployment of solar energy, locally headquartered business Sullivan Solar Power announced its launch of the San Diego Solar Program Sunday. The innovative program allows eligible residents to go solar for no upfront cost and receive a substantial cash payment for their involvement.

“San Diego’s Solar Program is designed in a manner that financially encourages the entire community to go solar,” said Daniel Sullivan, founder and president of Sullivan Solar Power, “The goal is to shift San Diego’s dependence from nuclear power and imported fossil fuels to renewable resources and show the rest of the nation that it can be done.”

The program provides participants cash payments at a level greater than incentives that are provided by the State of California. The program is modeled similarly to the State program, in that the early adopters will receive the highest incentives. The average San Diego county homeowner who participates in the first phase of the program will receive a check for $2,500. Incentive amounts will be reduced as more people sign up until the program closes on December 31, 2012. The countywide solar program is limited to 500 residences.
