Note: Alameda Municipal Power had a budget of $4.2 million to support this program. The utility has allocated the full budget and is no longer accepting applications. The information below is provided for historical purposes.

Alameda Municipal Power offers an incentive program to customers who install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Rebates will be provided to commercial and residential customers on a per-watt AC basis, which, in keeping with the terms of the California Solar Initiative, will decline over the life of the program according to a 10-year schedule. Each succeeding year has a lower incentive amount and a higher maximum aggregate capacity for installations. For 2015, the rebate level is $1.68 per watt for systems less than 50 kilowatts (kW). Over the life of the program, Alameda Municipal Power has a goal of 2,127 kW of new solar capacity. The full 10-year incentive declination schedule can be found on the web site above.

Additional restrictions and eligibility requirements apply.
