Self-Generation Incentive Program
Designed with Business in Mind
If you want to generate your own power, the Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) could be a good option for your home or business. SGIP offers rebates to residential, commercial, industrial, government and non-profit customers who install qualifying types of distributed generation to meet all or a portion of their own energy needs.
The SGIP can help reduce your greenhouse gas emissions while also helping reduce electrical system demand, which in turn helps reduce the need to build expensive fossil fuel-fired power plants.
There are several rebate levels based on the technology type you use and how much energy you generate. The SGIP Handbook (PDF) offers a detailed guide to the program, and will answer questions you might have about equipment and rebates.
How to Apply
For most homes and businesses, the SGIP application is a three-step process:
