Roseville Electric provides financial incentives to encourage local builders to construct energy efficient homes which incorporate solar resources. Participating builders can choose to build Preferred Homes or BEST Homes. The program requires that participating homes in a new development must incorporate energy efficient elements which can include 15 SEER/12 EER air conditioning units,and a minimum 20% cooling savings better than 2005 Title 24 requirements. Participating homes also incorporate roof-top solar technology, which will be rewarded with a $2/watt incentive for systems 10 kW or less. Systems larger than 10 kW must abide by the rebate schedule in Roseville's Solar Electric Program Handbook.

To be eligible, the dwelling must be either a single family detached or single family attached unit of any number of stories and on a utility residential rate. Additions, apartments, remodels, manufactured housing, mobile homes, residential care facilities and dormitories do not qualify. Additional restrictions exist. Interested builders and developers should contact the utility for additional information and view the program web site listed above.
