Minnesota Power has introduced an updated version of its SolarSense program, which provides solar project incentives for residential and commercial customers.

According to the utility, the program provides a base rebate of $2,000/kW; rewards customers who choose solar products, equipment or systems manufactured in Minnesota; encourages quality installation by solar installers certified through the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP); offers a bonus rebate to customers with a proven history of energy efficiency in their homes or businesses; and recognizes nonprofit/tax-exempt customers with a higher rebate to support demonstration and/or community renewable energy projects.

The program's new tiered incentives, when combined with the base rebate, could total as much as $4,750/kW for eligible solar projects. For example, a 5 kW system could qualify for more than $20,000 in combined rebates and incentives, Minnesota Power says.
