The Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) enables customers greater access to battery storage through a financial rebate. Currently, the rebate is 15-20% of the average battery cost. Any PG&E customer can apply for this program.
For Medical Baseline customers living in Tier 2 or Tier 3 High Fire Threat Districts (HFTD) or have been shut off 2+ times during Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) there are limited incentives available to offset the full price of the battery.
Residential customers applying for battery storage incentives must transition to qualifying home charging rate schedules [EVA, EVB, EV2A or TOU-C (Only for Medical Baseline Customers)] in order to be eligible to receive any SGIP storage incentives. This is to promote a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by providing the right price signals to charge during “off-peak” times when there are more renewables on the grid. You may also save money on these rates by charging your battery storage system during off-peak times and discharging it during “peak” times.
