Notes: (1) Shading in the table denotes Current Step.
(2) The "Actual" MW field in Table 1 denotes the actual amount of MW that are either actively reserved or completed in each step and will be paid out at the given incentive level. The "Actual" MW numbers are equal to the "Original" MW in step less dropouts from that step plus dropouts from previous steps. The "Original" MW amount represents the original number of MW allocated to the step in the CPUC decision D.06-12-033, Appendix B, Table 13.
(3) In accordance with the CPUC policy decisions that provided for a transition between the Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) and CSI, Step 1 was fully reserved in 2006 under the SGIP, which was only open to non-residential projects. The 50 MW in Step 1 were not allocated across the utilities and were reserved on a first come, first served basis. Although almost all Step 1 MW were reserved by non-residential entities, the PAs later reallocated Step 1 dropouts into both residential and non-residential customer segments.
(4) Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) is an SGIP administrator and had MWs reserved in 2006 for solar projects at the Step 1 incentive level, but since SoCalGas is not a CSI PA, it has no CSI MWs reserved after April 1, 2007.
*The non-residential customer class includes commercial, private, government, and non-profit participants.
**Per Senate Bill 585, PBI payments have been revised to reflect a 4% discount rate which creates new PBI rates for Steps 8, 9, & 10. Steps 8a and 9a are the original CSI incentive rates, while 8b and 9b are the revised rates. In compliance with the Final Decision released by the California Public Utilities Commission, these new incentive rates are effective 12/2/2011.
Please be aware that the final CSI incentive rate that is reserved for you will be determined by your CSI Program Administrator at the time your reservation request (RR) application is approved, and may be lower than the current incentive rate shown in the CSI Statewide Trigger Point Tracker. Please note that final incentive amounts are subject to change based upon the configuration of the as-built system. (Per the CSI Handbook, no projects or applications are reserved CSI funding until all required information has been submitted and approved in writing by the Program Administrator.)
