On November 25th. 2014 the Florida PSC voted to end a solar pilot program at the end of 2015 that requires independently owned utilities to offer solar rebates. This program will not be offered after December 31st, 2015.

Gulf Power offers a Solar PV rebate to residential and commercial customers. Gulf Power will provide a $2/watt rebate with a $10,000 per system maximum.

In addition, Gulf Power has a Solar for Schools program, providing capital funding for PV systems. Gulf Power has worked with the Florida Solar Energy Center to install several 4-kW systems at Florida schools. The program is funded with voluntary contributions and includes educational programs to teach students about solar energy.
