Hudson Light & Power Department, the municipal utility for the Town of Hudson, offers a limited number of solar photovoltaic (PV) rebates for residential, commercial, industrial, and municipal customers. Panels oriented between 170° and 220° (Range 1) receive $1.00/watt, and panels oriented between >220° and 300° (Range 2) receive $1.25/watt. Range 2 systems are intended to reduce late afternoon summer system peak demand.
The maximum incentive for residential Range 1 systems is $5,000 per installation per 12-month period, and $10,000 for commercial Range 1 systems. The maximum incentive for residential Range 2 systems is $6,000 per installation per 12-month period, and $12,000 for commercial Range 2 systems.
Only grid-connected systems are eligible. Interested customers must first complete the "Request for Rebate" for pre-approval; after receiving approval, the customer has one year to complete the installation. Hudson Light & Power Department will perform an inspection after the installation is completed.
