The Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) Expansion Amendment Act of 2016, effective October 8, 2016, (D.C. Law 21-154;63 DCR 12926) (Act) established that 10% of electricity delivered in the District of Columbia must be provided by solar by December 31, 2041.
The D.C. Solar Solution Program's initiative is to install grid-connected solar panels at no upfront cost on properties located in the District of Columbia. This is possible with the strong incentives available from the Act to support reaching the required RPS targets. A residential solar system in D.C. can eliminate on average 80% of utility power usage. What the homeowner pays in return is the electricity the panels produce, except at a rate that is fixed and priced 40% to 50% lower than current utility rates. This program has a target goal of installing 8,000 residential projects, representing only 5% of single family homes in the District.
Program required no money out of pocket to get installed!
No Credit Check required!
The program is available to all D.C. property owners or renters with landlord approval. No income qualifications for the program.
Solar electric rate is fixed at 6¢ per kWh (starting 11/1/2022). In comparison, standard Pepco rates in D.C. ranges between 10.5¢ to 15¢ per kWh.
The D.C. Solar Solution Program rate for solar power is fixed and will never increase during the 20 year term.
