How do I apply?
If you live in a single family residence and want to install solar, complete the GRID Alternatives form to see if you are eligible for a free solar system.
If you are a Multifamily Residence property owner, MCE strongly recommends reviewing Solar on Multifamily Affordable Housing Program (SOMAH) and California Low Income Weatherization Program (LIWP), as these resources provide larger financial incentives than MCE can currently offer for PV systems.
If you do not qualify for free single family solar through GRID Alternatives, or wish to continue with MCE’s Multifamily Solar Rebate Application process, please complete one of the required forms and documentation below:
Send your completed form to MCE by email: info@mceCleanEnergy.org or by mail:

When will I receive the rebate?
From the time MCE receives your completed application, it will take approximately one month for you to receive your rebate check in the mail. You will be notified through email as soon as your application has been processed for payment.
