This program has different incentives and caps depending on whether the system is displacing gas or electric. Incentives for electricity displacing systems are shown here. Incentive levels will step down over time independently for each service territory and customer class. Multifamily is grouped with commercial for this program. Non-residential solar pool heating was made eligible by legislation, but has not yet been rolled into the program. When it is, incentive levels will be the same as solar water heating.

Incentive/Summary '''''Note: This program was modified by AB
'''''Note: This program was modified by AB 2249, signed in September 2012. The bill allows for non-residential solar pool heating to qualify for incentives, and requires program administrators to modify their programs accordingly by July 1, 2013. Residential solar pool heating will continue to be ineligible for incentives. ''''' '''''This program was further modified by [http://docs.cpuc.ca.gov/PublishedDocs/Published/G000/M057/K537/57537558.PDF CPUC Decision 13-02-018] in February 2013. The decision allows other solar thermal technologies to qualify for incentives. Commercial combined solar water heating and solar space heating, solar process heat, and solar cooling will all qualify for performance based incentives through this program. Incentives will be paid quarterly for two years. However, before these new incentives are available, the Program Administrators have 120 days to file Tier 2 Advice Letters to modify the CSI Thermal Handbook. After the Tier 2 Advice Letters receive CPUC approval, the Program Administrators will have 60 days to implement the program changes. The summary below describes the program as it is currently available. ''''' AB 1470 of 2007 authorized the creation of a $350 million incentive program for solar water heating systems. Of the $350 million in total funding, $250 million is reserved for systems that will displace natural gas water heaters, and $100 million is set aside for systems replacing electric water heaters. Before developing the program, however, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) had to wait for results from a pilot solar water heating program administered by the California Center for Sustainable Energy (CCSE) in the San Diego area. After reviewing the positive results of the pilot program, the CPUC developed rules for the statewide program and the program administrators began accepting applications retroactively on May 1, 2010 for single-family residential systems installed after July 15, 2009. Rebate applications for multifamily residential and commercial customers have been accepted since June 2010. [http://docs.cpuc.ca.gov/WORD_PDF/FINAL_DECISION/172193.pdf CPUC Decision 12-08-008] of August 2012 established separate incentive rates for single-family residential systems and commercial/multifamily systems, each significantly higher than the rates previously available. The program is being administered by Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), Southern California Gas Company (SCGC) and CCSE on behalf of San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E). There are different incentive levels depending on whether the solar water heating system displaces electricity, natural gas, or propane. Incentives for systems with a capacity of 250 kW-thermal or less will be paid upfront based on the OG-300 estimated first year energy savings. Larger systems will receive 70 percent of the incentive upfront, with the remaining 30 percent paid after 12 consecutive months, based on actual metered energy savings. Note, [http://docs.cpuc.ca.gov/PublishedDocs/Published/G000/M057/K537/57537558.PDF CPUC Decision 13-02-018] replaced the 70/30 split with a performance-based incentive which will make quarterly payments for a 2-year period based on metered energy output. This change will not take effect, however, until the new CSI Thermal Handbook is approved. 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 four general customer classes.
