If you have already tackled all those energy efficiency projects and are looking for the next step, going solar might be a good option for you. And thanks to massive growth and competition within the solar industry, the cost of going solar has dropped significantly, making it a realistic option for many homes and businesses. The City of San Marcos Electric Utility encourages installation of grid-tied solar photovoltaic (PV) systems by providing a rebate to help defray the initial cost of the system, and also by buying back any excess solar power that you return to the grid.
Program is open to existing San Marcos Electric Utility (SMEU) customers with an account in good standing. Pre-approval is required in order to qualify for the rebate.
