Indianapolis Power & Light Company (“IPL”) Application for Renewable Energy Incentives

IPL’s Renewable Energy Incentive Program is available to both residential and small to medium-sized commercial and industrial customers. The program is designed to help offset the initial investment in Solar PV systems, thus making renewable energy projects more financially viable in the Indianapolis area. The program will provide incentive payments as follows:
Technology Incentive $ per watt $1.00 Maximum Incentive $4,000.00 Minimum Project Size (kW) 2.0

Solar PV

This incentive is complementary to federal and state incentives and tax credit programs. Funds for this program are limited and IPL will offer the incentives only until the available funds are exhausted. If requests for incentives exceed projections, this program may be revaluated for additional funding, but there are no specific plans to do so at this time. Applications will be processed in the order received, so it is important to submit a completed application as soon as possible. If IPL pre-approves the application for an incentive, it will calculate the incentive payment based on the submitted nominal name plate design output and system type and that amount will be reserved for three months for payment to the applicant upon completion of the installation. IPL will inspect the final installation to make sure everything is in place and working; install a meter to monitor system output; recalculate the incentive payment based on actual installed equipment; and release a check to the applicant. If an installation is not completed within three months of IPL’s pre-approval of the application, the pre-approved application will expire and no longer be considered for the program. IPL intends to track generation from small-scale renewable energy sources for non- billing information and reserves the right to install metering after the inverter and mount the IPL meter in an accessible and suitable exterior location. IPL will supply a meter base/cabinet and the customer must provide and install wiring as needed to allow for IPL metering.
