The incentive amount depends on whether the system is owned by the homeowner or a third-party:

  1. If system is owned by the homeowner:
    • Grant awards up to $10,000 to cover eligible costs associated with installing a solar photovoltaic system.
    • Grant awards up to $2,000 to purchase and install a solar power outlet in case of grid failure.
  2. For third-party owned systems:
    • Grant awards up to $2,000 to cover eligible costs associated with installing a solar photovoltaic system.
    • Grant awards up to $2,000 to purchase and install a solar power outlet in case of grid failure.

Eligible costs include any parts, components, or accessory equipment necessary to operate and/or install the device. A maximum of 15% of the grant award can be spent on reasonable measures to facilitate the installation of the system on a home (for example, tree trimming).  OCS Sustainable Energy staff should be contacted to ensure the measure(s) qualifies.
