Solar (PV)

NOTE: The City of Healdsburg’s SB1 Solar Rebate program is now closed. We are no longer offering rebates for solar systems.

The Electric Department connected its first photovoltaic system in 2002 and today has over 1.1 MW of solar panels interconnected in city limits. The Electric Department has facilitated this with its distribution of over $830,000 in solar incentives to our customers.

Per CA SB-1, Healdsburg residents may be eligible to offset part or all of their electric usage with a PV system. Tax credits may also be available to help with the installation of a PV system. Customers interested in installing a solar system must apply for a permit with the Building Department. The following documents explain the City's Solar Program.
