Mayor Ed Lee Announces Funding for Solar Incentive Program GoSolarSF

At a celebration for a new solar system installed on the roof of the Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall today, Mayor Ed Lee announced that The City’s solar incentive program, GoSolarSF, will be fully funded with $10 million over the next two fiscal years.

The GoSolarSF program, run by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, provides financial incentives for San Francisco property owners to install solar panels on their property. Since its introduction, the program has paid $19.4 million in incentives and completed 2,583 solar panel installations in The City.

Lee said, “The GoSolarSF program and the Davies Symphony Hall Solar Array demonstrate our commitment to installing more solar arrays in San Francisco to increase our renewable energy generation and create local jobs.”

The 558-panel solar system unveiled at Davies will provide roughly 15 percent of the facility’s electricity. It is one of 16 solar arrays used by SFPUC to power city buildings.
