Great news from yesterday, June 10th for SF residents:
San Francisco City Council passed by 8 – 3 an extended package of rebates for customers going solar in that wonderful city. We will be publishing more to our customers in that community in coming days to explain how they can tap it. In brief this rebate, on top of the California Solar Initiative, makes the economics of going solar in San Francisco the best in the US. Here’s an Earth2Tech blog that explains the SF Program.

Unfortunately, the bad news is that the Congress failed (again) yesterday to extend crucial tax credits to those who install solar. These tax credits are set to expire in January of 2009. Here’s hoping for a better bill to be passed in the remaining six months!
