Application Tips and Tricks – House of Worship Exemption to Prevailing Wage

< Back to Tips & Tricks

Supplementing previous guidance, the Program Administrator seeks to continue supporting stakeholders in the avoidance of project applications entering Need Info status.

  • House of Worship Exemption to Prevailing Wage: A project is exempt from prevailing wage if the project is for a House of Worship and the inverter size is under 100kW AC. To qualify as a House of Worship, the facility must be used exclusively by a religious society or body of persons as a place for religious exercise or religious worship that is exempt from taxation pursuant to Section 15-40 of the Property Tax Code (page 122 of the Guidebook). Proof of exemption is required. A common error observed by the Program Administrator is the submission of this type of non-residential project as “Non-Profit,” which are not exempt from prevailing wage requirements.
