Solar Photovoltaic Program
Energy efficiency rebates
Pennsylvania commercial, industrial, governmental and institutional customers of FirstEnergy’s Pennsylvania utilities (Met-Ed, Penn Power, Penelec, West Penn Power) may apply for energy efficiency rebate incentives for qualifying Solar Photovoltaic (PV) projects under the Program.
The project must be completed or installed on or after June 1, 2021, and no later than May 31, 2026.
To qualify for incentives through this Program, equipment must be new and installed after June 1, 2021, and on or before May 31, 2026.
A retail Interconnection Agreement must be submitted and approved by FirstEnergy Pennsylvania utilities prior to making an application for a PV project to FirstEnergy’s Pennsylvania Utilities PA Act 129 programs.
FirstEnergy Interconnection Agreement can be found at: Pennsylvania Interconnection (firstenergycorp.com).
All PV projects must receive pre-approval prior to purchase and/or invoicing of any equipment to ensure that the proposed project meets the Company’s program eligibility requirements.

The costs of energy efficiency programs are recovered through customer rates in accordance with PA Act 129 of 2008. For a complete list of commercial, industrial, residential, and low-income energy efficiency programs, please visit energysavePA.com.
By participating in these energy efficiency and peak demand reduction programs, customers agree to allow their utility to retain ownership of all Capacity Rights which refers to the demand reduction associated with any energy efficiency and peak demand reduction measure for which incentives were provided by the Company. Your utility will aggregate these energy efficiency demand reduction attributes into the PJM capacity market with proceeds being used to offset the program costs.
