  • The Self Generation Incentive Program Rebate

    The SGIP Rebate may be able to offset the cost of your Home Battery Storage system.

    What is the SGIP Rebate?

    The Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) helps Californians purchase battery storage to extend their home’s electrical power for several hours during power outages. Incentives can cover up to 100% of the purchase costs for customers who have home medical equipment, live in an outage-prone area, or are income-qualified.

    Who is eligible for SGIP?

    Anyone can apply for the SGIP Rebates. However, most funds are allocated towards Californians who are low income, live in outage-prone regions, and/or need electricity for home medical equipment.

    How do I apply for the SGIP Rebate?

    Visit the CPUC website to learn about participating SGIP. You can submit a reservation request for an SGIP incentive online here. All SunShares Selected Installers can offer guidance on SGIP applications and will help you though the process of applying for and receiving your rebate.

     Can SGIP be combined with the SunShares discount?

    Absolutely! SGIP can thankfully be combined with the SunShares discount, which means you can save even more on making the switch to solar + storage!
