The Self-Generation Incentive Program ( SGIP) provides financial incentives for the installation of distributed generation technologies installed on the customer's side of the utility meter. The electricity generated by the system provides a portion or all of the customer’s electric load.
SGIP gives incentives to retail electric and gas customers of the investor-owned utilities (IOUs) in California – Pacific Gas and Electric ( PG&E), Southern California Edison ( SCE), Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) and San Diego Gas & Electric ( SDG&E). The California Center for Sustainable Energy ( CCSE) administers the program within the SDG&E service territory.
The table below shows eligible self-generation technologies and associated incentive levels.
