Homeowners and small-business owners can receive grants for installation of solar heating, solar electric and hot water heaters under a $7.25 million program provided by the state Department of Environmental Protection for the agency's Sunshine Solar Program.

Residents can qualify for up to $5,000 for solar heating, up to $5,000 for hot water heater and up to $7,500 for solar electric, while small businesses can receive up to $50,000 for solar hot water heater and over $52,000 for solar electric, said spokeswoman Lynda Rebarchak.

To qualify, interested consumers should view DEP's website, www.dep.state.pa.us, keyword Sunshine, to view a list of state approved installers who can apply for the funds for the resident or small-business owner.
