Solar Rebate Program

Solar home pictureThe Wellesley Municipal Light Plant (WMLP) is participating in the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) Municipal Solar Rebate Program.  This program will provide a rebate to qualifying residential solar installations completed before June 30, 2021.  The rebate amount will be $1,200 per installed kW of solar generation capacity.

The program is limited to WMLP residential customers’ installations 10 kW DC or smaller. Installations must comply with all technical requirements of the DOER program. The funding for the program in Wellesley is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis.

How to apply for the Solar Rebate Program:

To apply, go to the Energy New England (ENE) Solar Program information page and download the “Customer Packet”, which will explain the program and help you with FAQs.  It will also contain some of the necessary documents that you must complete and submit with your application. In addition, with your application, you will need to include proof of your ownership of the property and a copy of the contract between you and your installer. These documents will be submitted online thru the ENE portal.

In addition to the documents contained in the ENE “Customer Packet”, the installer must download and complete the WMLP Net Metering / Interconnection Service Agreement. The WMLP ISA, along with the Installer's oneline diagram, and technical specifications for the inverters, must be submitted to the WMLP.

The above document submissions can be done in either order. But, the rebate application will not progress at ENE & DOER until the WMLP has approved the application locally. 

Submit WMLP documents and any questions can be directed to:

Daniel Fortin, Supervisory Electrical Engineer
