The California city of Lodi, fondly known as the “Zinfandel Capital of the World”, just added another variety to its merits–but this time, instead of wine, it is turning heads with its latest solar rebate program.
The sundrenched San Joaquin County city is offering residents up to $5,000 in solar rebates for new Photovoltaic system applications that are approved between Jan 3 to 31, 2017.
The rebate program, which according to city’s website is meant to “incentivize the installation of high-quality solar PV systems” has a $185,000 budget. The price tag would theoretically allow nearly half of Lodi’s population to get massive financial incentives for going solar.
Requirements for the rebates set forth by Lodi Electric Utility (LEU) mandate a system must produce the same amount or less than the home’s previous year of energy usage.

Lodi City Council and LEU announced the program earlier this year to take advantage of the 2006 Senate Bill 1 (SB1), establishing a California goal to add 3,000 MW of new solar systems to the state in over 10 years.
Once the city exhausts its rebate budget, rebates will then be determined on a lottery basis.
Go Green Solar is an appropriately licensed contractor in accordance with rules and regulations adopted by the State of California Contractors State Licensing Board (CSLB) and City Building Codes and can help you install PV modules, inverters, and meters listed on the California Energy Commission’s (CEC) Eligible Equipment List for the rebate.
