NYSERDA announces at least $2.5 million in incentives to encourage the
development of a network of Eligible Installers who will install end-use
wind energy turbines for residential, commercial, institutional or
government use. The incentives, of up to $100,000 per installation, will
be paid to Eligible Installers who install approved grid-connected wind
systems using Qualified equipment; eligibility requirements are
Incentives paid to Eligible Installers are intended to benefit both the
installer for business development, and the system owner where generated
power offsets the customer's utility power purchases. The Eligible
Installer must pass through incentives directly to end-use customers.
Incentives will be based on a percentage of the installed cost, ranging
from 50% of costs for systems of 500 Watts to 10,000W (10kW), to 15% for
systems larger than 80 kW. Larger incentives of up to 70% of costs are
available for commercial farms, and for school applications where wind
energy study is incorporated into its curriculum. Details are provided
on page 3.
Installers are encouraged to apply for eligibility through NYSERDA at
any time during the program, expected to continue through December 2005.
Installer eligibility will be determined and maintained for specific
equipment, based on professional experience. Once deemed eligible,
installers then apply for, and reserve on a first-come, first-served
basis, NYSERDA incentive awards for approved, grid-connected, end-use
wind systems as prescribed in this PON.
