Amount varies depending on the DC rating of the solar panels:
- $2 per direct current (DC) watt nameplate rating of the solar panel up to the first 10 kilowatts;
- $1.50 per DC watt nameplate rating of the solar panel from 10 kW up to 25 kW; and
- $1 per DC watt nameplate rating of the solar panel greater than 25 kW
- For example, a 28 kW system would receive $2 per watt for the first 10 kW, $1.50 per watt for the next 15 kW and $1 per watt for the remaining 3 kW, totaling a rebate of $45,500.
Customers can receive one rebate of up to $50,000 per premise during the life of the program. Customers with multiple locations can apply for rebates for multiple locations up to a limit of $150,000 per funding year.
Get to know the program requirements. Application Checklist
Work with your contractor to complete this checklist.
As part of a five-year pilot program authorized by the Florida Public Service Commission, this program is available to all existing FPL business customers. Each premise is eligible for one rebate for the duration of the program. The rebates are not available for new construction or PV systems that are already installed. Applicants must be current account holders of the premise where the solar photovoltaic system is being installed.
The Business PV Rebate is for business PV systems consisting of solar electric panels, mounting hardware, grid-interactive electric inverter(s), optional battery systems, associated cabling, and for systems over 10 kilowatt AC, disconnect devices. This rebate program is only for grid-interactive PV systems with a minimum nameplate rating of 2 kilowatts direct current (DC) and a maximum nameplate rating of 2 megawatts DC. All components must be tested and listed by a nationally recognized testing and certification laboratory for continuous interactive operation with an electric distribution system in compliance with the applicable codes and standards of IEEE 1547, IEEE 1547.1, and UL 1741. All products installed must be new, not refurbished or previously installed.
Customers should choose products and contractors carefully, given the many variables involved. The customer is solely responsible for selecting, hiring and managing the contractor who will install the eligible solar products. FPL bears no responsibility for the quality or performance of any products or contractors chosen by the customer.

FPL is accepting online applications only. Applicants must be current account holders of the premise where the solar system is being installed. There is no application fee.
Applications will be considered on a first-come, first served basis for a limited pool of funds. Demand is expected to be high, so rebates may go quickly.
Customers whose applications meet the program standards and requirements will receive "reservations" for rebates until FPL reaches the funding limit established by the Florida Public Service Commission for each rebate program. Customers whose applications do not meet all requirements will be notified and may be able to re-submit if the application window is still open.
Applicants who do not receive a rebate for 2011 can apply for a 2012 rebate beginning in October of this year. Please note that any system components installed prior to FPL's issuance of a rebate reservation will not qualify for the rebate.
