SGIP Overview

The California Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) is a ratepayer-funded rebate program overseen by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and available to retail electric and gas customers of the major California investor-owned utilities (PG&E, SCE, LADWP, & SDGE). The incentive amount steps down over time.. Most areas are currently in Step 2.  Step 2 Incentive is $400/kWh.


  • Significant increase in available funds for commercial and residential energy storage
  • Changes funding allocation so that 85% percent of the new funding is reserved for energy storage projects
  • Allocates new funds in 5 Steps that provide funding for projects based on a specified, decreasing incentive amount. Step 1 has the highest rebate per watt-hour, and declines over the Steps until funds are exhausted under Step 5
  • A priority is given to energy storage connected to solar

Adara Power can assist solar developers with SGIP reservations to ensure that you receive the highest quality energy storage systems at the most reasonable prices. Don’t pay mark-ups for inexperienced, web-based resellers who are trying to game the system for profit (don’t take our word for it).

SGIP is a complicated process that requires multiple steps for commercial customers to take advantage of the incentives. Learn about the SGIP Application Process or check out our SGIP FAQ.
