Good news for New Hampshire residents mulling over the idea of buying solar powered hot water systems: a new mix of federal and state rebates and tax credits.

The state's Public Utilities Commission has expanded its maximum rebate to $2,900.

Broken down, that's a maximum $2,000 from federal stimulus money (which was raised from $750) plus a maximum $900 available from New Hampshire's renewable energy program. And another piece of good news: folks getting the maximum $2,900 rebate can also get a 30 percent federal tax credit. To read more, visit Seacoast Online's website.
