The California Solar Initiative (CSI) is a solar rebate program for California residents who purchase their power service from one of the state’s main investor-owned suppliers: Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E); Southern California Edison (SCE); or San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E). It’s just one of many new ways California is incentivizing home owners to invest in solar energy alternatives by essentially paying you to do it!
This, together with other rebate programs like New Solar Homes and those offered by many of the publicly-owned utilities in the state, helps make the investment in solar technology for your home even more affordable and lucrative. All of these programs are part of the “Go Solar California” campaign.
The CSI also measures incentives based on how efficient well-performing a solar energy system is. The better the system, the greater the incentive. It considers factors such as installation angle, tilt, and location.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Key features of the CSI include:
