What is the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP)?
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) established the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) to to support existing, new, and emerging distributed energy resources, and to provide financial incentives to encourage more energy storage systems and distributed energy systems to be installed that meet all or a portion of the electric needs of a facility.
SGIP is structured in the form of five incentive levels or steps, with the incentives declining over time as the market matures. See the following graph:
