OUC Discontinues Production Credit

Unfortunately for home owners being served by Orlando Utilities Commission who want solar, a very generous incentive has been discontinued.  OUC previously paid 5 cents a kilowatt hour for every kilowatt hour produced, whether it was used in the house or sold back to the utility.  For the average solar customer, that has provided an additional $40 a month credit giving many homeowners a very good return on their solar investment.  Existing solar customers will see the credit continuing for five more years, but no new customer is eligible. 

It is sad to see the incentive gone, but it has been very effective in promoting solar in Central Florida.  The quantity of homes on this program had increased rapidly lately so the costs may have been an issue for OUC.  In addition, the popularity of solar has grown so incentives like OUC’s are less necessary for the solar industry.
