Learn how the program can benefit your business

The Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) offers rebates to help you save on energy storage systems for your business. Battery storage can help your business be prepared in the event of a power outage. An outage can happen at any time due to weather, an emergency or other factor. With a battery, you can use stored energy to keep your business powered.

Benefits of battery storage

Battery storage enables you to:

  • Have backup power: Batteries can provide backup power for your business during a power outage. How long a battery storage system can provide power depends on its size and how much power is needed. An energy storage system paired with solar can help power devices for days. Pairing solar with storage also lets you recharge your battery during the day. This can extend how long your backup power lasts.
  • Potentially reduce your energy costs: You can charge your battery when power is cheaper and use it when the cost of power is higher. If paired with solar, a battery can help you get the most savings on your bill under Net Energy Metering. Before investing in a system, please review your expected financial return.
