Find out what’s required of you to install a new renewable energy system.


Get energy efficient

Before you install a renewable energy source for your property, you can improve your current energy efficiency. A few simple measures can reduce your overall energy use or water consumption and save you money. You may be able to save thousands of dollars in up-front costs by reducing the size of your system. Understanding your energy usage also helps you prepare for an informed discussion with your contractor.

PG&E provides a useful Business Energy Checkup available in the Your Account section of this website. Our energy-efficiency audit, Business Energy Checkup, is required to qualify for some of the rebate and business solutions programs we offer. Learn more about this checkup. Visit Business Energy Checkup.


Choose a contractor

Choosing the best renewable energy system for your property begins by finding a qualified contractor. Your contractor can help select the system that meets your business’s energy needs. Your contractor also arranges for the permitting, installation and site inspections necessary to connect your system to PG&E.
