Everyone complains about their electric bill, so when I came across the ad, I posted the info.
I didn't think it would get such ignorant responses.

When you install solar to your home, it is the VI Energy Office that issues your rebate check. Correct?

Don't submit for your rebate if this is how you feel. If you can afford to install solar. You can afford to get no rebate checks from the VI govt or any other govt entity.

I am sure people meant no offense to you BeachcomberSTT.
We are all just pretty fed up with the high costs of WAPA so it just bled thru in the comments.

I took advantage of the appliance rebate they had when I purchased a new washing machine a couple years ago.
It took so long to get the rebate that I, quite frankly, had completely forgotten I had sent the paperwork in.
It took me a few moments to figure out what the check was for, that they eventually sent, 6 months or so after I had submitted it.
Was happy to get it, however!

I'll try to remember the day it's here as would love to cut my bills but really do so much already that I do not understand how they can still be so high and wish I could afford to go solar. They do need to cut the red tape, the hoops one must jump thru as well as the length of time it takes to process applications and approve them. From what friends have said that have gone solar, it can take quite a long time.

Thanks for the info.(tu)
