The Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) provides financial incentives for the installation of new qualifying technologies that are installed to meet all or a portion of the electric energy needs of a facility.

The purpose of the SGIP is to contribute to Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission reductions, demand reductions and reduced customer electricity purchases, resulting in the electric system reliability through improved transmission and distribution system utilization; as well as market transformation for distributed energy resource (DER) technologies.

Please view the Program Metrics page for incentive fund availability in each service territory and budget category.

For questions, please reach out to the SGIP Program Administrator (PA) in your territory.

Large-scale storage projects claiming the ITC will no longer be subjected to a 72% differential of the current 
incentive rate if the equipment was purchased after December 31, 2021 as outlined in CPUC Decision 
20-01-021.
 
Current large-scale storage projects claiming the ITC that prove to have purchased equipment after 
December 31, 2021 will receive the same incentive rate as non-ITC large scale storage. The ITC plus the 
SGIP incentive will continue to remain capped at the total eligible project costs. Proof of purchase will be 
verified during review of the executed customer contract.
 
If funding is available, incentives of the affected applications will be adjusted during the application review. 
Please reach out to your respective SGIP PA if you have any questions about the incentive calculation for 
projects claiming the ITC.

Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) has launched its Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) and Wildfire Event Lookup Tool

CSE now hosts on its website a tool San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) customers can utilize to determine how many PSPS events they’ve experienced. Customers can look up their SDG&E meter number to 
determine if their property has been impacted by two or more PSPS events or a wildfire outage. The tool will 
be updated as new events are reported by SDG&E. Please note that at this time, the tool will only reflect 
outages due to PSPS events. Customers should reach out to SDG&E directly regarding information on 
whether they have been affected by an outage due to a wildfire. Wildfire outages will be added as the data is made available to CSE.

To GHG Signal API Users:

This is a reminder that on January 31, 2022 at midnight [PST] the new SGIP GHG signal will become the 
default signal provided through the SGIP GHG signal API. Both the old signal (version 1.0) and new signal 
(version 2.0) are currently available, but by default the v1.0 signal will be delivered until January 31, 2022 at 
which point the new signal will be delivered by default. While the new signal remains substantially similar to 
the old signal, the updated assumptions will change the magnitude of the signal and we advise developers to review the new signal if it could affect your optimization approach. Please see the SGIP GHG Signal API 
documentation for details on how to access the different model versions.

If you have any questions regarding the new GHG Signal version, you can contact Henry Richardson, 
WattTime Senior Analyst: henry@watttime.org

SGIP Stakeholders,

Effective December 16, 2021, California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) issued a disposition on the SGIP 
Advice Letter 4481-G/6316-E approving the updated SGIP Handbook to reflect recent changes from CPUC 
Decision (D.) 21-06-005.

As of January 5th, 2022, you may start drafting SGIP incentive applications for all Generation Projects as the Database has been updated with the new Handbook modifications implementing D.21-06-005. This Decision also removed the pause on applications related to Renewable Generation Projects that use a 
capture/use/destroy baseline; however, applications for projects that use a capture/use/destroy baseline will 
be required to remain in “RRF Draft” status until January 12th, 2022. 

Please contact your SGIP Program Administrator for additional information.
2021-12-22
On December 16, 2021, the California Public Utilities Commission approved Decision 21-12-031. This 
Decision requires the SGIP Program Administrators (PAs) to immediately allocate all accumulated unallocated funds, approximately $67 million, to the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) energy storage budgets: (1) first to energy storage budgets with waitlisted applications as of the date of adoption of this decision, with priority given to waitlisted Equity Resiliency budget, Equity and then General Market applications; (2) after all waitlisted applications have been served, the decision allocates remaining funds, if any, to Equity Resiliency 
budgets.

In order to comply with this Decision, the PAs will be assigning funds to the projects on the waitlist as of the 
date of the Decision approval over the next few weeks. During this time, no projects on the waitlist for the 
affected budget categories will be assigned funding from attrition. PAs will also reach out to the participant(s) 
for any projects for which partial funds may be available to offer first right of refusal. This process is expected to be completed on January 3, 2022, with the projects for which funding is assigned receiving notices on 
January 4, 2022. After this process is complete, the waitlist will resume automatic operation with funds being assigned to projects on the waitlist as attrition occurs funds become available. 

If you have any questions about this process, please contact your respective PA.

CPUC Decision D.19-08-001 (http://docs.cpuc.ca.gov/PublishedDocs/Published/G000/M310/K260/310260347.PDF) requires that legacy applications (applications submitted to the SGIP application portal prior to April 
1st, 2020) adhere to one of the three compliance pathways detailed below. Developers have the option every December to change their selected pathway from the previous year, effective for the forthcoming year. 
Developers may select a new compliance pathway during the enrollment period of December 1st, 2020 
through December 15th, 2020.  

Option 1: RTE Pathway:
      • Legacy projects must comply with the annual RTE requirement of 66.5 percent in place at the time the 
        project was approved.

Option 2: Storage Rate/DR Pathway:
      • The annual RTE requirement does not apply but the project must enroll in an economic demand 
        response (DR) program integrated into the CAISO or a future demand response auction mechanism 
        (DRAM) offering, or in an approved storage rate.

Option 3: Zero GHGs Pathway:
      • Developer fleets must reduce GHGs to zero kg/kWh rated capacity, assessed annually; and, the annual 
        RTE requirement does not apply.

Please note that all legacy applications will automatically default to their current Compliance Pathway if a new selection is not made during the enrollment period. If you wish to select an alternate pathway, you must 
submit the form at the link below between December 1st, 2020 through December 15th, 2020. 

GHG Pathway Compliance Form: https://forms.gle/Rzyu68v2YBxWtHss8

Thank you for your continued participation in the program. If you are not changing the Compliance Pathway, 
no further action or response is needed for your project(s). Please use the Public Report (https://www.selfgenca.com/report/public/) to determine the Application Codes associated with your Developer Company.

Residential Projects

For General Market Small Residential Storage projects with discharge duration greater than 2 hours that were on the Step 5 waitlist and have been assigned to Step 6:

Due to recent program modifications adopted by Decision (D.)20-07-015, Resilient General Market Small 
Residential Storage applications that have been approved by the AHJ to grid island and provide backup 
power in the event of a grid outage can opt-in to the new incentive step-down structure in which 100% of the 
incentive base rate is available for systems with durations of up to 4 hours (Handbook Table 5.3.3). 

For Example: Step 6 = $0.20/Wh (Base incentive)

Discharge Duration (hours) x % of Base incentive

Current incentive step-down structure
0 – 2 hours = 100% of Base incentive
2 – 4 hours = 50% of Base incentive
4 – 6 hours = 25% of Base incentive
6+ = 0% of Base incentive

If electing to opt-in for a Resilient System:

Revised incentive step-down structure
0 - 4 hours = 100% of Base incentive 
4 - 6 hours = 50% of Base incentive 
6+ = 0% of Base incentive

To opt-in to this revised incentive structure, the SGIP applicant must first upload a completed Customer 
Resiliency Attestation (bit.ly/3nQDiuz) to the SGIP portal.

Once this document has been uploaded to the SGIP portal, you may request review of your project for this 
change by registering your project at the following link: forms.gle/kH2LnS9zaK1wwQnN9

Only projects that have submitted a Customer Resiliency Attestation prior to registering will be considered a 
complete request for evaluation. Requests will be reviewed in the order received and will be subject to 
funding availability to support an increase to the current incentive value of the application. This link will be 
active through Dec. 31, 2020. Requests received after Dec. 31, 2020 can be submitted directly to your 
Program Administrator.

Dear SGIP Participant,

The SGIP Program Administrators (PAs) would like to provide you with an update regarding the review of
your Step 1 and/or Step 2 SGIP energy storage Reservation Request status. The PAs have received a high 
volume of applications, and are currently working with several equipment manufacturers and developers on 
application documents affecting multiple projects. We hope to resolve these issues shortly, so that we can 
resume review of individual SGIP applications in a timely manner.

The PAs are working diligently to get these issues resolved as quickly as possible. Thank you for your 
patience and understanding. Please contact the PAs if you have any questions or concerns.

Warm Regards,

Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E)

Per the Assigned Commissioner’s Ruling** on Proposed Refinements to the Self-Generation Incentive
Program filed on June 2, 2017, the SGIP Program Administrators (PAs) intend to comply with the
Commissioner’s direction to delay Step 3 opening for both energy storage budget categories until the
proposed policies are approved. Once a Decision is issued, the PAs will work to incorporate any new policies
into the program and set a Step 3 opening date. 

Step 2 in CSE’s territory for the Small Residential energy storage budget is closed effective July 15, 2017. No
new applications may be submitted to this budget category until Step 3 opens at a later date. Step 2 remains
open for Large-Scale Storage.

Please make note of the following important dates:

Monday, June 5: Applicants may submit completed Step 2 applications at www.selfgenca.com

Small Residential Energy Storage and Large-Scale Energy Storage developer caps will be fixed for Step 2 on Monday, May 22.

Please note the following incentive rates for Step 2:

Large-Scale Storage: $0.40/Wh
