Energize Delaware Solar Loan

The Energize Delaware Solar Loan program is a low interest loan designed to encourage the purchase of customer sited and owned renewable generation. This will result in customer utility bill savings, reduction in the environmental impact of energy production, delivery, and use, and will promote local job growth in the solar installation industry.

  1. Optimum array orientation is 180°. The program accepts solar arrays oriented between South of due East and South of due West or between 80° and 260° magnetic. Systems installed between 260° and 80° magnetic or North of due East and North of due West are not eligible for a Green Energy Program Grant.
  2. Optimum array tilt is equal to the latitude at the installation site. However, the program accepts array tilt parameters as specified by the module manufacturer which may allow for tilts greater than and less than latitude.
  3. Arrays shall be installed such that the array has a minimum of six (6) hours of unobstructed sunshine daily inclusive of solar noon. A “solar window” of eight (8) hours of unobstructed sunshine is preferred. The installing contractor shall perform a “Solar Shade Analysis” to ensure the array meets the minimum daily sunshine requirements. Results of the solar shade analysis must determine that 70% of the annual solar path’s area is shade free to be considered for a grant.

Applications can be completed online by the homeowner at  www.GreenGrantDelaware.com. The application has two parts, initial and final. After Part I is submitted, applicants will receive an eligibility letter via email. If approved, the solar project may begin. Applicants must begin their installation within three months of the acceptance. Once installation is complete, the applicant must complete Part II. Part II must be completed within six months.

*Approved Applicants: After Part II documents have been submitted and reviewed, the applicant will receive a notice via email. Once funds have been dispersed to the installer, the homeowner will begin their loan repayment the following month. Homeowners can opt for paper or electronic statements.

Participating Installers will pay an initiation fee of $100 and their status will be checked with the Better Business Bureau as well as providing their state licensing information.

All customers will receive a survey after their loan is disbursed that will cover both program design and administration as well as Participating Installer experience. Participating Installers that do not consistently provide excellent customer experience will be considered for removal from the program at the SEU’s sole discretion.

How Installers Get Paid: After all Part II documents are submitted and reviewed, funds will be dispersed directly to the installer.
