PEA’s Solar Savings Grant Program supports low- and moderate-income households to participate in Solarize Philly. PEA provides a grant for a portion of the project cost for eligible households, so that participants can finance the remainder of the cost and start saving from Year 1, regardless of their FICO score. To qualify for the Grant Program, your total household income must be at or below 80% of the Area Median Income (see table below), you must have paid your PECO bill on time and in full for the past 12 months, and you must own and occupy the property where the solar PV system will be installed.
The Solar Savings Grant Program is supported by Solarize Philly Program Fees and a PHARE Grant from the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency.

- Have paid your PECO bill on time and in full for the past 12 months.
- Own and occupy the property where the solar PV system will be installed.
