Solar Rebates

Tampa Electric offers rebates when you install a new photovoltaic (PV) and/or solar water heating system in your home or business.

Please note that 2015 marks the final year of our $1.5 million solar pilot program that was designed to encourage the installation of PV and solar water heater systems. During the first four years, Tampa Electric has distributed approximately $4.2 million in solar rebates.

Rebates are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Existing systems will not qualify for the rebate.
