The Virgin Islands Energy Office currently offers rebates to residents for purchasing solar water heaters from local vendors. The program will cover residential, solar water heaters of 120 gallons or less, approved by the Solar Ratings and Certification Corporation.
A household can receive a maximum of two solar water heater rebates. Rebate amounts vary slightly based upon installed equipment. Rebates will be $1,250 for solar water heaters with an OG-300 rating and will be up to $1,000 for solar water heaters with an OG-100 rating.
Funds are limited and rebates will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis as long as funds are available. Residents are advised to contact the Energy Office at 4101 Mars Hill on St. Croix (713-8436) or in Tutu Park Mall on St. Thomas (714-8436) prior to making their purchase.
