GoSolarSF rebate program to receive an additional $2 million in funding, says Mayor Lee Date Published: December 29th, 2017 Categories: Uncategorized The funding for GoSolarSF, San Francisco’s rebate program originally developed to increase the number of solar rooftops throughout the city, faced some unfortunate cuts in 2012, decreasing from $5 million to $2 million and reducing the resources available to consumers who would have liked to benefit from it. Fortunately, Mayor Ed Lee recently conveyed some good news regarding the future of the initiative. According to multiple sources, Lee made an announcement at the swearing-in of new California Energy Commissioner David Hochschild, stating that he think it’s time to fully restore GoSolarSF, which has made it possible for more than 2,000 residents of the city to install solar panels since its inception in 2008. The City and County of San Francisco website reports that Lee plans to add $2 million in funding for the fiscal year 2013-2014. “GoSolarSF has shown a proven track-record of success and has created more than 100 jobs for San Franciscans while jump-starting our own local solar industry,” said Lee. “Today, our city is a leader in clean energy because we’re reducing greenhouse gas emissions, in part, by generating more and more of our energy locally from rooftop-installed solar arrays.” At West Coast Solar, we’re thrilled to hear about the mayor’s support for GoSolarSF.
