The Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) is spearheaded by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and is a critical supporter of renewable energy from waste heat to wind, fuel cells and energy storage.
Are you a homeowner interested in installing a home battery to store renewable energy? Homeowners who purchase a home battery are eligible to receive the SGIP rebate, up to $5,000.
Applications can be filled out by visiting the Southern California Edison website.
How it Works
CPUC sets aside funding for residential energy projects in California and is available to homeowners installing a home battery. Here are some need-to-know facts about funding distributed:
A tiered system is used to disburse funding. Each tier has a certain amount of allocated funds. When one tier runs out of funding, the program falls into the next tier. Tiers are differentiated by the number of incentives an applicant receives (i.e. tier one is 50 cents per Watt-hour, the next tier is 40 cents per Watt-hour, and so on).
Once a homeowner installs a home battery, claims (fee may apply) can be filed out by visiting the Southern California Edison website. Once a claim is approved, payment will be made directly to the homeowner.
For more information, please read the Self-Generation Incentive Program Handbook.
