California Solar Incentives
Updated May 4th, 2015

Californians have been long time advocates for solar power. So much so, California has become the nation’s pioneer and leader when it comes to “going solar”. Other states look to California to see the trail that’s been blazed with their California Solar Initiative. They want to catch up, and they are following suit.

Governor Jerry Brown passed a law that requires California to get 33 percent of its power from renewable energy by 2020. No wonder the incentives from California's utilities have been so great. Depending on your utility company, however, they may be running out quickly.

Still, all Californians can take advantage of the 30% Federal Tax Credit, which will allow you to recoup 30% of your equipment AND installation costs for an unlimited amount.

Customers of PG&E, SDG&E and SCE: It's time to act. Hopefully it's not too late. Funding from the California Solar Initiative, which was was set up to help you go solar is running out.

What kinds of projects are eligible for the California Solar Incentive (CSI)?
Under the CSI, solar power systems installed on existing homes, as well as existing and new commercial, industrial, government, non-profit, and agricultural properties within the service territories are eligible for funding.

How does the California Solar Incentive (CSI) work?
Rebates and performance-based Incentives are set up to decrease as time goes on in 10 steps. They started out at $2.00 per watt, but are now on the 8th, 9th and 10th steps.

    For Pacific Power Customers
  • Look up current incentive step here.
  • Read how to get started here.

Some small and not so small utility companies have some really large rebates
If you're not a SDG&E, PG&E, Pacific Power or SCE customer, you still have great rebates and incentives.
For the remaining 32 percent of California, utility solar programs are often modeled after the CSI, but their rebates and incentive amounts vary greatly--anywhere from $0.20 per watt to $3.80 per watt.

While some utility companies are currently offering great rebates, others have a waiting period are out of funding for the time being. We've put together some of the best rebates below. Is your utility company here? If not be sure to check here, and don't forget the Federal Tax Credit that can be applied to 30% of your installed costs.

For companies like Redding Electric, whose funding has been exhausted through 2015, you can still take advantage of the 30% Federal Tax Credit. Find out what your utility company is offering on this database of incentives.

If you combine the 30 percent Federal Tax Credit with state, local, and utility rebates, and a reduced power bill for the next 25 to 40 years, investing in grid tied solar is more affordable than you might think. The Federal Tax Credit can also be applied to offgrid systems, and even back up systems if you add solar panels to them.

Are there any local incentives in your area? You’ll want to check. San Diego, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Santa Monica all waive permit fees or expedite permits for any “green” projects. San Francisco and Marin County both have rebates programs. Marin County also has its own performance based incentive.

California law requires utility companies to offer a net metering program to their customers. A net metering program allows an owner of a gridtied solar power system to sell excess power their renewable power system generates back to the utility company for credit on their power bill. At the end of a 12 month period, a customer can choose to roll over credit or receive a payment.  Read more here.

Property Tax
The California Revenue and Taxation Code allows a property tax exclusion for 100 percent of new photovoltaic solar energy systems installed between January 1, 1999, and December 31, 2016. System owners should contact the applicable county assessor's office for further information. Click here for a listing of County Assessor offices in California, and here for a letter to the assessor that further clarifies the terms of the exclusion. Read more here.


Summary

  • California Solar Initiative applies to SDG&E, PGE and SCE customers and represents 68 percent of California's power usage.
  • The remainder of the utility companies have wide ranging rebates and incentives worth checking out.
  • Rebates and incentives generally diminish over time, so it's best to act quickly.
  • Property tax exclusions are available.
  • The 30 Percent Federal Tax credit can be combined with any California incentives (local or otherwise) to compensate for your solar investment.
  • Net metering is offered in the state of California.

The Good News About Solar System Incentives, Qualifications and Tips
Some solar incentive programs pay you back over time, based on the energy you generate. Other solar incentives are one-time payments of rebates or credits. Incentive requirements and definitions may vary between states.

Incentive types can be specifically for residential, schools, business, or industrial; or inclusive of all of them. Solar incentives are mainly for grid tied systems and are sometimes available for off grid systems.

The incentives may be only for solar photovoltaic (electric), for electricity generated by wind, or for solar thermal (hot water generation). Other types of incentives may incorporate multiple solar technologies.

Programs with yearly or periodic application dates have credits or rebate rates that may be stepped down over time.

To qualify for incentives, your solar system may have to be installed by a licensed Photovoltaic System Installer, and/or connected to the grid by a licensed Electrician. This may be particularly true for Grid-Tie (Grid-Intertied) systems.
Plan ahead and act quickly. Many incentive programs are time sensitive. First-come-first-served programs, such as lotteries, can be spoken for in minutes after the opening of their application date.

Be careful including incentives in your PV system's budget due to requirements and possible deadlines to meet before qualifying.

Always consult a tax professional in regards to your eligibility for tax incentives.





Solar Incentive Glossary
Battery Backup Systems
Battery backup systems can store electricity from the grid or a fuel-powered generator to provide emergency power when the grid goes down. It can also store energy created PV system to power appliances and lights at night after the sun goes down.

Feed in Tariffs,
a Performance Based Incentive, or PBI

(Available for Grid Tied Systems.)
Feed-in Tariffs are typically long term contracts with your local utility for performance-based compensation.

The contracts are typically a 15-25 year purchase agreement at a guaranteed rate. The rate may decrease over time as specified in the agreement. Feed-in Tariffs may ultimately pay for your PV system or even exceed your initial investment depending on the specifics in the contract.

Originally started in Germany in 1990 and restructured in 2000 to include the right to interconnect to the utility grid. It was designed as an incentive to promote cost-effective renewable energy use and advancements in technologies. Due to its success, the current German policy is the cornerstone for the creation of many feed-in tariff programs around the globe.

Green Building Programs
(May be available for Off-grid and/or Grid-tied Systems.)
Green Building Programs are generally for new construction and remodeling, or just adding a solar electric system. The most common incentives are reductions or waivers of building permit fees. Some state or local organizations offer coupons that reduce construction and/or installation costs to homeowners. The home or business owner usually gives the coupon to their program-authorized installer/contractor. Once the system is installed the installer/contractor can be reimbursed for the amount of the coupon by the program's organization.

Grid-Tied PV Systems
Grid tied systems are inter-connected to send energy back to the grid when your solar electric system creates more than you're using; and you can receive energy from the grid when you're using more electricity than your system is generating at the moment. Learn more about grid-tied solar systems.

Loans
(May be available for Off-grid and/or Grid-tied Systems.)
State or local governments may offer low or zero interest loans for renewable energy projects. Terms are typically 10 years or less. If you are going to purchase or remodel a home that you are going to add a solar system to you may also want to see the Energy Star website for information on Energy Improvement Mortgages (EIMs).

Property-Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing may be offered by states that have been authorized to participate in this program. The amount of the loan is determined by a special assessment of your property and is typically repaid over a period of years.

Check with your local banks and credit unions as they may offer renewable energy loans for less than the prime rate. Also consider that mortgage loans and home equity loans can offer several advantages: longer terms, lower interest rates than conventional bank loans, and tax-deductible interest.
Net Metering
(Available for Grid Tied Systems.)
As of January 2012, only four states do not have net metering policies ‐ South Dakota, Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee. These programs are for utility customers who generate their own electricity and feed excess energy back into the grid. Net-metered customers may use grid energy when their electrical demand exceeds their solar electric system's output. Solar electric credit rates are applied to the customer's total electric use and are shown on the utility bills.

The credit rates and rules vary from state to state. Unused solar electric system credits may expire in a specified time period or they may be carried over from year to year. The credits may only be applied to the utility bill or you may be allowed to get a refund check at the end of a designated period, usually the end of the year.

Off-Grid PV Systems
Off grid systems do not feed energy back to the grid. You may be completely independent from the grid or you may be receiving grid electricity to supplement your system (Grid-Assisted). Learn more about off-grid solar systems.

Solar PV System (Photovoltaics)
A solar PV system uses photovoltaic panels (or modules) to create electricity. This powers appliances, lights, and other electric equipment.

Solar Thermal System
A solar thermal system uses panels (or modules) to heat water. The hot water is typically used instead of a water heater for everyday water use, or in a radiant heating system to warm the air.

State and Local Tax Incentives
(May be available for Off-grid and/or Grid-tied Systems.)
  • Personal tax incentives include income tax credits (dollar-for-dollar reduction on what you owe) and income tax deductions (reduces your taxable income).
  • Property tax exemptions, exclusions and credit incentives generally exclude the added value of the system from your yearly property tax. Abatements may reduce a percentage of your yearly property tax over time.
  • State sales tax incentives can be an exemption from or a credit towards the applicable sales tax.
Utility Rate Discounts & Rebates
(Available for Grid Tied Systems.)
Some utilities and state or local programs may offer temporarily reduced rates on utility bills, or one time rebates on the installation of solar systems and purchases of energy efficient appliances and/or HVAC systems.
