Starting in 2011, Hudson Light & Power Department, the municipal utility for the Town of Hudson, started offering a limited number of photovoltaic rebates for residential, commercial, industrial, and municipal customers. The maximum incentive is $5,000 for residential customers per installation per 12-month period and the maximum incentive for non-residential customers per installation per 12-month period is $10,000. Only grid-connected systems are eligible. Interested customers must first complete the "Request for Rebate" for pre-approval; after receiving approval, the customer has one year to complete the installation. Hudson Light & Power Department will perform an inspection after the installation is completed.
