Learn about interconnecting to the PG&E electric grid

The Electric Generation Interconnection (EGI) team can help you navigate the process of quickly, safely and efficiently interconnecting to the PG&E electric grid. We can help with almost any self-generation project, whether it’s:


  • Rooftop solar energy for your own use
  • A large wind farm
  • Any project in-between

 

Choosing the right self-generation system

The type of self-generation system that you install and your plans for using the power that you generate determine which generation path is right for you. Three paths are available:

 

  • Generating electricity for your home or business
  • Generating electricity exclusively to sell to PG&E as a Qualifying Facility (QF)
  • Selling excess power to PG&E or on the open market
