Self-Generation Incentive Program

The Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) provides financial incentives for the installation of clean and efficient distributed generation technologies. SGIP is a ratepayer-funded rebate program, overseen by the California Public Utilities Commission, and available to retail electric and gas customers of the four California investor-owned utilities (Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, Southern California Gas and San Diego Gas & Electric). CCSE is the program administrator for SDG&E territory.

SGIP plays a critical role in the deployment of distributed generation projects and the reduction of onsite electric demand and greenhouse gas emissions. In San Diego, CCSE provides technical and financial assistance to prospective and current program participants interested in wind, waste energy recovery, pressure reduction turbines, fuel cells, advanced energy storage and combined heat and power technologies. 

The program is currently funded through December 31, 2015, with an annual statewide incentive budget of $74.7 million. CCSE’s share for San Diego projects is approximately $10 million a year. Detailed information about the program, application process and eligibility requirements is available in the SGIP Handbook.
