How to Apply for SGIP Rebates

The application process for the Self-Generation Incentive Program depends on several factors including system size, installed technology and incentive category.

To receive an SGIP incentive, applicants follow either a two-step or three-step application process. The project developer or contractor will typically manage the application process and serve as the applicant.

To get started with initiating a project, a contractor/installer should be contacted to help navigate the application process, confirm eligible technology, and work with program administrators to apply for the appropriate budget category.
