California is determined to generate megawatts of new solar-generated electricity, moving the state towards a clean energy future. And now you can help! Join the thousands of home and business owners who have received cash back rebates by installing solar energy systems through the California Solar Initiative. Customers earn cash rebates for every watt of solar energy installed on homes, businesses, farms, schools, and government and non-profit organizations.

How to Qualify?

Those who presently get their power from one of California's three investor-owned utilities (IOUs - Pacific Gas and Electric, Southern California Edison, or San Diego Gas & Electric), and you have roof or ground space that gets unobstructed sunlight from 11 a.m. to sunset year round, you qualify for cash back incentives through the California Solar Initiative. Customers of municipal utilities also qualify for incentives through their municipal service provider.

Those who don't know their utility company can find them via this searchable database.
