Massachusetts to Launch Block 5 of the Commonwealth Solar II Rebate Program

On Friday, January 14, 2011, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) will begin accepting applications for Block 5 of the Commonwealth Solar II Rebate Program (Comm Solar II) consisting of $1 million. MassCEC will continue accepting applications until the earlier of the date upon which all Block 5  funds are exhausted or March 31, 2011.

The maximum available rebate will be $1.70 per watt or $8,500 per project.  The Comm Solar II rebate levels are as follows:
