Foster City Introduces New Rebate Program for Installing Residential Solar Photovoltaic
For Immediate Release: October 03, 2016

Foster City residents have a new reason to consider installing Solar Photovoltaic technology on their homes – a $1,000 rebate from the City of Foster City for resident-owned residential solar arrays.

The City Council has authorized rebates of $1,000 per residence on a first-come, first served basis until the $200,000 funding source is exhausted.

Only resident-owned systems are eligible for City rebate funding. Other options for obtaining solar technology, such as leases and power purchase agreements are encouraged but not eligible for rebate funding. Rebates may be combined with other promotions offered by the City or other agencies.

Residents are reminded that a very effective way to save money on solar energy is to implement energy efficiency measures before installing solar so that the array is not over-sized. To learn more about how to make sure your home is energy efficient, go to www.energyupgradeca.org.

For all the terms and conditions of the Solar Rebate Program or to download the rebate application, visit www.fostercity.org or pick up an information packet at the Building Permit Counter at City Hall, 610 Foster City Boulevard, Foster City.

More information on the rebate program is available at: www.fostercity.org/publicworks/engineeringandconstruction/20asolarrebate.cfm.
