1. California Solar Initiative (CSI)
This program offers cash back for installing solar on your home or business. The CSI provides incentives for photovoltaic system installations to customers of the state’s three investor-owned utilities: Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), and San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E).
The CSI Program provides upfront incentives for photovoltaic systems installed on existing residential homes, as well as existing and new commercial, industrial, government, non-profit, and agricultural properties within the service territories of PG&E, SCE and SDG&E.
2. Single-Family Affordable Solar Homes (SASH)
SASH intends to decrease the expense of owning a solar system by providing incentives that are larger than those in the general CSI program. SASH provides qualified low-income homeowners fixed, up front, capacity-based incentives to help offset the upfront cost of a solar electric system.
3. New Solar Homes Partnership (NSHP)
The NHSP provides financial incentives and other support to home builders. It encourages the construction of new, energy efficient solar homes that save homeowners money on their electric bills and protect the environment.
