SGIP Assistance

Self-Generation Incentive Program

Program Status

Our revolving fund is currently fully allocated, providing upfront incentives for over 100 battery storage projects. We will re-open the program once we receive SGIP incentives from PG&E to replenish the fund.

Helping homes install battery storage

The California Public Utilities Commission’s (CPUC’s) Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) offers rebates for installing battery storage systems and other energy storage technologies which can function in the event of a power outage. It is important to note that for the Statewide program, the rebate is available after the application process is complete and the technology is installed.

Simplifying the process

Though the benefit of adding battery storage to your solar system is clear, we recognize the up-front investment can be cost prohibitive. That’s why we’ve launched the SGIP Assistance Program, to reduce out-of-pocket costs and help homeowners receive their rebates without delay.

To enable residential customers to strengthen their energy resiliency, SCP’s Assistance Program provides:

  • incentive payments in advance for your battery storage system project and
  • help to participating contractors with SGIP paperwork and the application process.

Connecting a battery storage system to your existing solar array will better prepare you for future power outages and use the renewable energy your system generates to its full potential. Learn more about basics of battery storage here.

Incentive amounts

There are different incentive levels you may qualify for. Funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

General Rebate

All residential customers are eligible for a General Market rebate of approximately $250/kilowatt-hour. SCP provides the entirety of the incentive up-front for General Market projects.

More information about eligibility details and rebate amounts is available here.
