The California Solar Initiative’s (CSI) Residential incentive program in San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) service territory (administered by CCSE) has reserved enough projects to meet the goals of the program through Step 10. Consequently, CCSE cannot guarantee that unreserved Residential photovoltaic (PV) or Single-Family Residential electric and propane displacing solar water heating (SWH) projects will receive CSI incentives in the future.
However, CCSE still encourages customers to apply for a CSI rebate. All new applications received after 5:00 p.m. (PST), Tuesday, January 22, 2013 for Residential PV incentives or Single-Family Residential electric and propane displacing SWH incentives will be placed onto the Wait List. Wait listed projects may still have an opportunity to receive an incentive if previously reserved projects drop out of the CSI Program.

The California Solar Initiative (CSI) is the solar rebate program in California for customers of the investor-owned utilities - Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E). Through the CSI, the California Public Utilities Commission is providing $2.1 billion to businesses, nonprofit organizations, public agencies and homeowners to help lower their energy costs, reduce their reliance on fossil fuel-fed power plants, and create a sustainable energy future through the use of solar technology.
The CSI program is directly administered by each investor-owned utility, with the exception of SDG&E, whose CSI program is administered by the California Center for Sustainable Energy (CCSE), an independent nonprofit organization.
The rulebook of the CSI Program, the CSI Program Handbook, describes the detailed requirements for receiving incentives for the installation of solar energy systems under the CPUC-managed incentive programs: solar photovoltaic (PV), solar thermal (solar water heating), multiple-family affordable solar housing (MASH), single-family affordable solar housing (SASH), and other solar technologies.
