|Subject:||Dedicated Funding for the Pennsylvania Sunshine Solar Program|
|When we return to session, I intend to introduce legislation that would provide a dedicated funding source for the Pennsylvania Sunshine Solar Program. This extremely popular program was created in 2008 and funded with a $100 million bond. It is currently out of funds.
This legislation would provide the program $25 million per year. Residential homeowners, small business and non-profits who install solar systems would be eligible for a rebate of up to 10% of the cost of the system.
Funding for the program would come from the initial off the top distributions of Act 13 of 2012, otherwise known as the Marcellus Impact Fee.
If you would like to co-sponsor this legislation, please contact Terri Koller at (717) 787-7647 or by email at TKoller@pahouse.net.
Introduced as HB200
