Florida Power & Light to grant USD 5m in additional funds under solar rebate plan
Aug 30, 2011 - US utility Florida Power & Light Co (FPL) is looking to distribute some USD 5 million (EUR 3.5m) in remaining funds under its 2011 solar rebate programme to households and businesses that intend to install solar power systems.
Today, the company is reopening the application process, it said in a statement on Monday. The application process first opened on June 29, when the available funds were reserved for less than an hour.
FPL's solar rebate program aims to bring down energy consumption and peak demand. It is part of a pilot initiative that has been given the green light by the Florida Public Service Commission.
