PG&E has reached the 2,409 MW NEM Cap under the NEM tariff.1 The NEM, NEMV, and NEMVMASH (collectively "NEM1") programs are now closed to new customers. To learn more, review frequently asked questions about NEM1.


All new NEM applications will be processed under the NEM Successor Tariff programs, NEM2, NEM2V and NEM2VMSH.2 These programs are all now available. Review the information below for more information about the NEM2 program.


1 The cap is reached because the amount of NEM-eligible megawatt generation exceeds the NEM 5% Program Limit capacity in PG&E's service territory.
2 NEM2 is authorized by Public Utilities Code § 2827.1 and implemented by Decision 16-01-044 (NEM successor tariff).
