Find out if you're eligible for clean-energy incentives

A clean energy system has many benefits, including saving money. PG&E has several incentive programs and each program has its own eligibility rules and is specific to the renewable energy technology you plan to install.

We can also help you find a contractor who will help you to understand the incentives and the approximate savings you can expect. Visit Find a Contractor.

Solar water heating

Install a solar-water heating system in your property. Buildings using natural gas to heat water can receive an incentive. The incentive does not apply to heating pools. To learn more, visit California Solar Initiative Thermal Program.

Wind, fuel cell and other clean energy

Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP)
Install alternative energy technologies in your business to receive an incentive. Some examples include wind, battery storage, fuel cells, and combined heat and power systems. These can be coupled with a solar energy system. To learn more, visit Self-Generation Incentive Program.

Note: Incentive program applications are typically completed by your contractor. If you receive incentives, your contractor may discount your up-front costs with your incentive amount for immediate savings.

State incentive programs

In addition to PG&E incentive programs, there may be other financial offerings available to make renewable energy more affordable. For more information, visit the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE).
