Summary:

The program is being administered by Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), Southern California Gas Company (SCGC) and CCSE on behalf of San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E). Homes must heat their water using gas or electricity supplied by one of the participating utilities to be eligible for incentives. There are different incentive levels depending on whether the solar water heating system displaces electricity or natural gas. Incentives will be paid upfront based on the SRCC estimated first year energy savings. Similar to the PV incentives offered through the California Solar Initiative, the incentives offered through this program will step down four times as installation milestones are met. Steps will decline separately in each service territory and for the two general customer classes.
