Learn about financing, tax benefits and sizing your system

An initial investment in renewable energy can save your business money for years to come. PG&E is here to help you make informed decisions about bringing solar and renewable energy to your property.

Please note:


  • There is no financial benefit for installing a system larger than your property needs. Compensation for excess generation through Net Surplus Compensation (NSC) is set by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) at roughly $0.02 to $0.04 per kWh and does not justify the cost of an oversized system.
  • Network upgrades may be necessary before you can install your system. Your contractor will work with PG&E to determine if upgrades are required and inform you of any additional costs.
