The City of Shasta Lake has suspended the PV Buy Down Program, until at least the next fiscal year.
The City of Shasta Lake offers a Photovoltaic (PV) Buy Down Program to help offset your investment in a PV system and get you on the road to making use of renewable energy. The City of Shasta Lake provides rebates to its customers to reduce the initial system cost.
All California utilities are required to collect Public Benefits Funds from their customers. These funds are to be used by the utilities to develop and implement public purpose programs such as photovoltaics. The City of Shasta Lake is committed to promoting and supporting renewable technologies and is offering its customers rebates to reduce the purchase and installation costs for PV systems.
The City of Shasta Lake's PV Program uses its customer funds to provide these solar incentives. To obtain the best value for our customers, the City of Shasta Lake PV Program is designed to encourage the installation of PV Systems that produce the maximum amount of energy possible, so our Program incentive is calculated based on an Estimated Performance Calculation
