Are incidental costs associated with project upgrades eligible for CEIP financing?

Under the legislation, incidental costs are costs expended on preparation or upgrading of the property that is incidental to the clean energy improvement but required for successful execution. For example, roof repairs required for the installation of a rooftop solar project could be considered a financeable incidental cost. 

These costs are eligible for financing under CEIP, up to 15 per cent of the total capital cost of the upgrade. Any excess incidental costs above this limit must be paid by the participating property owner out-of-pocket.
