Two-Step Application Process
ALL RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS AND NONRESIDENTIAL PROJECTS < 10 KW
The SGIP releases new forms as needed, and required forms vary by Program Administrator. The document refenced below are applicable for projects requesting an incentive reservation for the current program year. Legacy documents can be downloaded here.
The SGIP application process is managed by an Applicant, an entity assigned by the Host Customer to submit documents on their behalf through the SGIP application portal. The Applicant is usually the contractor or developer for the project. Only the Applicant can access the application in the portal.
All projects must be assigned to an approved SGIP Developer (usually the contractor) in order to submit a reservation request. Information on becoming an approved developer can be found at www.selfgenca.com/home/dev_register.
All nonresidential projects greater than or equal to 10 kW apply for the Self-Generation Incentive Project via the three-step process.
