Good evening,

We would like to help Ken with the solar panels-perhaps it will send something to APFN. I emailed Ken to see how I can set everything up to help them.

There is a call tonight at 9pm EST. You can listen and/or ask questions. I do not want to give you any incorrect information, so please listen if possible. The number is 512-879--2065--code 987111.

We can assist the signing from the website to hopefully help Ken/APFN when you decide that you chose to take advantage of the offer. The signing does need to be input before the 1st otherwise there is a 500 dollar deposit.

Thanks so much.


PS-Our number is 813-333-5780--if you call--we will disconnect and call you back.

Florida's Solar Energy System Incentives Program was established in June 2006 (SB 888) to provide financial incentives for the purchase and installation of solar energy systems from July 1, 2006, through June 20, 2010. A total of $2.5 million is available for the 2006-2007 fiscal year, with future funding subject to appropriations.

The program, administered by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), provides rebates to Florida residents, businesses, non-profits, and public facilities who purchase and install a new PV system of 2 kW or larger, a solar water heating system that provides at least 50% of a building’s hot water consumption, or a solar thermal pool heater.

The incentive amounts for each solar technology are as follows:

Solar Photovoltaic Systems

* Residential: $4 per watt DC up to $20,000
* Commercial, Non-profit, Multi-Family, or Public Facilities: $4 per watt DC up to $100,000

Solar Water Heating Systems

* Residential: $500 per installation
* Commercial, Non-profit, Multi-Family, or Public Facilities: $15 per 1,000 BTU up to $5,000 (BTUs must be metered)

Solar Thermal Pool Heaters

* $100 per installation

Applications for the rebate must be made within 90 days after purchase of the solar energy equipment.
