Solar Incentives

Pacific Power's California Solar Incentive Program (PPCSIP) provides financial rebates for the installation of grid-interconnected eligible solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.  Pacific Power's goals include the addition of 3.542 MW of new PV generation capacity for customers in the northern California service territory.  In addition to the renewable energy generation component, the program leverages the effectiveness of energy efficiency measures. Incentives will be available July 1, 2011, through July 1, 2015, or until the PPCSIP incentive budget has been fully reserved, whichever comes first.

Pacific Power's California Solar Incentive Program rebates are available to qualified residential, commercial, industrial, government and irrigation customers for solar photovoltaic systems on both new and existing structures. For all projects, energy efficiency, the expected performance of the system and the design and installation of the system, will determine the incentive amount.
