Step 2: Choose a Contractor

A qualified, licensed solar contractor will provide you with a free site evaluation and comprehensive quote. Obtain and compare multiple bids before beginning.

Who and How

Who: You
How: If you can, get referrals. Another great resource is the California Solar Initiative (CSI)* database of eligible contractors. We cannot endorse, recommended or partner with any solar contractor. If you receive solicitation claiming the contractor is affiliated with us, please report it to csigroup@sce.com.

*CSI commercial program funding is now on “waitlist” status. New commercial customer applicants are not guaranteed the rebate.

Step 3: Installation

Your PV system will need to utilize a smart inverter to be approved for interconnection.  In addition, your local jurisdiction (city or county) will perform an onsite inspection and provide the required permit.  Often times, your contractor will manage these activities and complete the installation.  The installation itself may take as few as three days..

Who and How

Who: Your contractor
How: Your system should be sized to your site and to your typical energy load. Permits are issued by your city or county, and we may need to inspect your finished system.

Step 4: Net Energy Metering

Be sure to sign up! A net energy meter measures the excess solar energy you generate and credits your bill. If you generate more than you use, your excess energy goes back into the grid, and saves you even more.

Who and How

Who: Your contractor
How: Once your application is approved, your meter will be updated and you are immediately signed up for the rate plan.
