PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Maine's largest city is creating an incentive program to try to motivate residents to adopt renewable energy and heating sources.
Portland officials said Wednesday the city's “Electrify Everything!” program is a chance for residents to get discounts on solar panels and home heating appliances. The city is working with solar company ReVision Energy on the effort.
Officials said ReVision will offer $500 off solar installations and $250 off air source heat pumps, heat pump water heaters and home electric vehicle chargers. It's also offering up to $60,000 to help low-income households adopt solar, officials said.
The city said the incentives complement rebates, incentives and tax credits also available from state and federal programs.
