The CPUC’s Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) provides incentives to support existing, new, and emerging distributed energy resources. The SGIP provides rebates for qualifying distributed energy systems installed on the customer’s side of the utility meter. Qualifying technologies include wind turbines, waste heat to power technologies, pressure reduction turbines, internal combustion engines, microturbines, gas turbines, fuel cells, and advanced energy storage systems.
Energy Efficiency Requirements
An Energy Efficiency Audit (EEA) report issued within the last 5 years identifying the payback periods for all prescribed measures should be submitted. EEA reports must be issued by utility, PA, or qualified vendor/consultant.
Any measures identified with a payback period of two years or less must be implemented prior to receipt of the upfront incentive payment. Implementation of the required measures will be verified during the field verification visit.
A Title 24 energy efficiency compliance report issued within the past three (3) years may also be used in lieu of an Energy Efficiency Audit. To verify that the requirements have been met, a copy of the Title 24 building permit documentation should be submitted.
