Interested in solar panels?

The new Massachusetts Municipal Light Plant Solar Rebate Program allows residential customers of municipal light plants to apply for a rebate for the purchase, installation, and usage of PV solar panels on their homes.

The Ipswich Electric Light Department program includes a base rebate of $1.20/watt, with an additional $0.30/watt available for the first 10 kW. Eligible solar installations must be 25 kW or less, with a 10 kW limit for residential, with less than 20% shading, and facing between 90 and 270 degrees. For solar interconnection requirements, see the IELD’s Distributed Generation Policy. Other restrictions may apply.
