It’s appropriate that Pennsylvania native Ben Franklin is on the $100 bill, especially if you’re thinking about going solar. Whether you live in big Pennsylvania cities like Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, or smaller cities like Allentown or Scranton, Pennsylvania has just let loose some solar rebate love for you, and it’s a pretty sizable incentive.

We’ve just updated the Pennsylvania solar page, so you can see the eligibility requirements and some sample costs of a 3Kw to 5Kw system.

Bottom line: The Pennsylvania Sunshine Solar program could take care of up to 35% of your installed cost. That’s in addition to the Federal government’s 30% tax credit (which is supposed to be calculated after the Penn rebate is subtracted.)

Remember that the program has just started. As it becomes more popular, the rebate will decrease (step down), so get in as early as you can by getting approved by solar installer in your area. Then you can start not only saving money, but also trees, polar bears, and, you know, the planet. Big deal.
