CSE administers the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) in the San Diego Gas & Electric territory, playing a critical role in the adoption of distributed generation and energy storage projects throughout the region. Through SGIP, rebates are offered to utility customers who install clean and energy-efficient distributed generation and storage technologies that reduce on-site electrical demand and greenhouse gas emissions. In San Diego, CSE provides technical and financial assistance to those interested in advancing energy storage, fuel cells, wind, waste energy recovery, pressure reduction turbines and combined heat and power 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 major California investor-owned utilities.
CSE has reserved incentives for more than 486 energy storage projects totaling over 20 MW.
