Solar Power is Heating Up!
About 100 solar photovoltaic installations are up and running in Pasadena's residential neighborhoods and nearly 100 are in the works!
Savvy homeowners locked in the PWP’s 2008 solar rebate rate before the end of year so they could have a little more time to plan their 2009 solar projects.
The 2009 residential rebates are a bit lower -- $3.15 per watt -- but are still among the most generous in the nation. (That's the beauty of having a community-owned utility like PWP!)
The current 2009 rebate rates won't last long, so lock them in now if you're planning for solar in your home in the near future. Permit fee waivers and a new 30% federal tax credit are also available for a limited time.
A free workshop for customers of Pasadena Water and Power is scheduled for Thursday, January 29, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Salvation Army Pasadena Tabernacle, 960 E. Walnut St.
