The Virgin Islands Energy Office is again offering rebates to residents for purchasing solar water heaters from local vendors.
The program, beginning Sept. 10, will cover residential, solar water heaters of 120 gallons or less, approved by the Solar Ratings and Certification Corporation. A household can receive a maximum of two solar water heaters. The rebate will be for $1,250 for heaters with an OG-300 rating and up to $1,000 for those with an OG-100 rating. Funds are limited and rebates will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis as long as funds are available.
Residents are advised to contact the Energy Office at 4101 Mars Hill on St. Croix (713-8436) or in Tutu Park Mall on St. Thomas (714-8436) prior to making their purchase. Supervising the rebate program is Leila Muller. Her email address is Leila.firstname.lastname@example.org and her phone line is 713-8436, ext. 3606.
