Find out about clean-energy incentives and additional programs.

A clean energy system has many benefits, including saving money. There are several PG&E and other incentive programs. 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 water heating

California Solar Initiative (CSI) thermal program
Install a solar-water heating system in your property. Buildings 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 California Solar Initiative Thermal Program.

Wind, fuel cell and other clean energy

Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP)
