Solar Pilot Program

– Assistance Available for Modest-Income Households –
Eligible low- to moderate-income homeowners can get help with the cost of installing solar panels through a new two-year pilot program just launched by the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC). The pilot program seeks to test the future expansion of residential solar photovoltaic systems into these market segments, which have been underserved by existing renewable energy assistance programs. There are two different pathways to qualify for receiving a cost-free or reduced-cost solar installation on your home.  Qualified low-income households can receive a cost-free solar installation of up to 4 kW. Qualified moderate-income households can get 70% of the cost of a system up to 6 kW paid for by the program. For more information, click here. Funding for the LMI Solar Program comes from the Weatherization Assistance Program and the Green Energy Fund.
