FPL successfully opened their application period for the 2013 solar rebate program this morning. A representative from FPL has contacted the FlaSEIA office to report that a total of $6.8 million in PV rebates have been reserved. The $4 million for residential PV was quickly reserved. However, the $2.8 million for commercial PV took over two hours before all the funds were reserved. The residential solar water heating program still has over $1.1 million remaining, while the commercial solar water heating program has over $800,000 remaining.
As we reported earlier, FPL instituted a standby list on this launch. This standby list was created at the urging of FlaSEIA. FPL customers on the standby list will be contacted in the numerical order in which applications were received should funds become available due to cancelled reservations. There are over 100 FPL customers on the standby list. We appreciate FPL listening to FlaSEIA and implementing a standby list.
