Net metering in California is part of what makes the Golden State the undisputed leader for solar in the country. In fact, California saw 13,241 megawatts (MW) of solar installed as of the end of 2015, more than five times as much as #2 state Arizona.
California’s SGIP rebate is one of the best incentives in the country for homeowners who want to install a home battery with their solar panels. The Golden State already leads the country in solar energy – it has more solar capacity than any other state in the U.S., and nearly six times more solar than number-two state Arizona. Now, California is becoming a leader in energy storage. Thanks to the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) you can get a rebate for most or all of your solar battery installation in California, and it’s about to become a lot easier for homeowners to access. Here’s everything you need to know about SGIP rebate.
