Learn about EPIC

The Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) program enables PG&E, other California Investor-Owned Utilities and the California Energy Commission (CEC) to execute emerging technology demonstration and deployment projects that address emergent grid needs. The projects also provide safe, reliable and affordable services and advance California energy policies in a cost-effective manner.


The current EPIC program is approved through 2020. It includes three, three-year funding cycles that began in 2014.


EPIC 1: 2014-2017. EPIC 2: 2015-2018. EPIC 3: 2018-2021
