California Solar Initiative

CSE administers the California Solar Initiative (CSI) Program for customers in the San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) territory. Through CSI, the California Public Utilities Commission provides over 200 million dollars in incentives to help businesses, nonprofit organizations, public agencies and homeowners lower their energy costs, reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and create a sustainable energy future supported by solar technologies in the San Diego region.

The CSI program is a rate-payer funded rebate program for customers of the four California investor-owned utilities. Each investor-owned utility in California directly administers CSI rebates, with the exception of SDG&E, whose CSI Program is administered by CSE.
