4. Performance Data Provider (PDP) Information

SGIP projects 30 kW and larger are required to install performance meters to determine the production, emissions and efficiency of the installed equipment following the initial commissioning of the project. The collected performance information will be used to execute the performance-based incentive (PBI) payment over a five-year timeframe. System owners of SGIP projects may choose to either apply for PDP status or contract with an approved PDP.

5. California Manufacturer Information

An additional incentive of 20% will be provided for the installation of eligible distributed generation and energy storage technologies from a California manufacturer. To see an updated list of approved CA manufacturers, or to apply for CA manufacturer status, please download the forms below.
