Solar Water Heating System Rebates and Tax Credits

APS Rebates

Up to 15 percent of your energy bill can come from heating water, but the sun can do it for free. When you install a solar water heater, you may be eligible for a one-time incentive payment from APS equal to $0.75 times the first year kWh savings your system provides (kWh savings estimates are based on the industry OG-300
performance rating as published by the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation).

The maximum APS incentive you can receive is equal to 50 percent of the total system cost. Other incentives such as a Federal tax credit (30 percent of the system cost) and a State tax credit (25 percent of system cost up to $1,000) may also be available to you. Participants are required to contribute a minimum of 15 percent of the actual system cost.

Here's an example of the costs and incentives associated with the installation of a solar water heating system using APS:
