Rocky Mountain Power's Solar Incentive Program has a total budget of $50 million for calendar years 2013 through 2017. That budget is divided between program years and program sectors (residential, small non-residential, and large non-residential). Eligible systems must be net-metered, and the statewide maximum system size for net-metered systems is 25 kilowatts (kW) for residential and 2 MW for non-residential. Participants in this program may size their systems up to the maximums allowed by net metering, but incentives will be restricted based on the sizes referenced below. The incentive amount available to each program sector is designed to step down every year according to the following schedule:
