Solar Rebate Saving Brazeau County
The rebate system offers savings of $0.75 per watt up to $10K which is the maximum, and only one application is available to landowners within the county. An additional application could be considered in the future as part of the initiatives of the program. In order to be eligible for the residential project a Wire Service Provider known also as a WSP is needed and the interconnection approval needs to be signed on the 1st of April 2018 or thereafter.
The PV or a solar photo-voltaic system needs to be connected to the grid in accordance with the AR27/2008 Regulation of the Alberta Micro-Generation. The system should be appropriate for the Indigenous solar program or the municipal solar program of Alberta, while the incentives, combined from the program of the government should never exceed 100% of the system cost. The claimer needs to own the property or be in possession of long-term rights. The system is both installed and designed by a qualified installer and cannot be self-installed due to strict regulations and to ensure all component meet the safety standards of the Canadian Association CSA.
