Builder Incentives and Criterion


The SunBuilt Program is an incentive-based solar program, designed to give builders and potential clients the opportunity to interact with solar water heating technologies. To do this, we grant participating builders with either solar water heating rebates or system vouchers to reduce the initial purchase cost of the solar systems. The program was originally developed as a joint effort between the Florida Solar Energy Research and Education Foundation and the Florida Home Builders Association, under the direction of the Florida Energy Office.

SunBuilt Builders can receive a $500 solar water heater rebate for each solar equipped home. In addition, builders who commit to building all homes with a solar water heater are eligible for a voucher for a free installed solar water heater on their model or parade home.


Rebate Criterion:
To receive the $500 solar water heating system rebate, a builder must:

System Voucher Criterion:
To receive a free installed model OR parade solar water heating system (including storage tank), a builder must:
