Find out about clean-energy incentives and additional programs.

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

We can also help you find a contractor who will help you to understand the incentives and which program is right for your needs. Visit Find a Contractor.

Solar panels

Multifamily Affordable Solar Housing (MASH)

Building owners install solar panels on low-income, multifamily dwellings like apartment buildings, and tenants receive incentives. To qualify for this PG&E program, the building owner must provide documents that verify low income. To learn more, visit Multifamily Affordable Solar Housing (MASH).

Solar water heating

California Solar Initiative (CSI) ThermalClean energy

Install a solar water heating system in your single-family home. Homes using natural gas to heat water can receive an incentive. The incentive does not apply to heating pools. To learn more about this PG&E program, visit Solar Water Heating.

Wind, fuel cell and other clean energy

Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP)

Install alternative energy technologies in your home to receive an incentive. Some examples include wind, fuel cells and battery storage combined with heat and power systems. To learn more about this PG&E program, visit Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP). To learn more about the battery storage technology and evaluate if it’s right for your home, visit Battery Storage for Residential Customers.

Additional incentives

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.


The following clean technology programs do not offer incentives but may help customers save on their bills. Your contractor will also be able to help you understand which program is right for you.

Net Energy Metering Aggregation Program

The PG&E Net Energy Metering Aggregation (NEMA) program may be a good option for customers looking to utilize a renewable energy system to serve the load of multiple meters on the same property, or on adjacent or contiguous properties. To learn more about NEMA, visit Discover Net Energy Metering Aggregation.

Battery Storage

Battery storage is a way to optimize energy by storing power now to use later. To understand if storage is right for you and learn how to get started, visit Battery Storage for Residential Customers.
