Solarize Rhode Island seeks to expand the adoption of small-scale solar electricity in participating communities through a competitive, tiered-pricing structure that increases savings for everyone as more home and business owners sign contracts.

State Solar Incentive Programs – The Renewable Energy Fund (grants) administered by Commerce Rhode Island and the Renewable Energy Growth Program (tariffs) administered by National Grid are limited by available funding or kilowatt capacity that can be awarded each year to Rhode Island residents and businesses. These two solar programs are available on a first-come basis for qualifying projects.

 Participating in the Jamestown or Narragansett Solarize campaigns does not guarantee acceptance into the state solar incentive programs. For information about the State solar PV incentive programs go to:
