The Kentucky Solar Partnership, in collaboration with the Energy Center at the University of Louisville, is offering a $500 rebate for solar water heaters installed on residences in Kentucky. Funding is available for 25 installations. Owner-installed systems are eligible, but applicants must demonstrate that they have attended a solar water heater installation workshop or have the necessary skills to complete the project, and must meet all the terms and conditions of the program.

As a condition for receiving a rebate, recipients must agree to allow the Kentucky Solar Partnership to inspect the solar water heating system after installation and to perform monitoring of the performance of the system for up to two years. They also agree to allow information about their home and solar system to be used in educational materials produced for the purpose of promoting the use of solar energy.

Swimming pool heaters and radiant home heating systems are not eligible for the incentive at this time, nor are repairs to or expansion of existing solar water heating systems.
