Please visit the SGIP Program Metrics page for the current incentive rates, current available funds and step opening dates for all budget categories.

Please see the current SGIP Handbook for more information on how to size your system to determine the appropriate Watt-Hour (WH) or Watt (W) and to determine to which budget category you qualify.

Energy storage systems are incentivized based on the WH-AC of the system.
