ACWA is hosting a free webinar to discuss the Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP), which has $830 million in funding available to develop energy storage and renewable generation technologies.

The webinar will be held March 11 from 11 a.m. to noon. It will include an overview by Southern California Edison on SGIP and a presentation by CalCom Energy on the SGIP application process, the benefits of the program and case studies of water agencies’ energy savings. Water and wastewater agencies will have the opportunity to ask questions about how to utilize the ACWA Preferred Provider Program to apply for SGIP funds. Register for the webinar on ACWA’s website.

The California Public Utilities’ SGIP authorizes $166 million annually for years 2020 through 2024 to customers affected by Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) or customers located in areas of extreme or elevated wildfire risks. Eighty-five percent of funds will be awarded for energy storage technologies, and the remaining 15 percent will be made available for renewable generation technologies. Water agencies can submit applications starting April 1. Funding will be administered on a first-come, first-served basis and allocated as follows: PG&E ($73.04 million), SCE ($56.44 million), SDG&E ($21.58 million), SoCal Gas ($14.94 million).

In addition, SGIP’s Equity Resiliency Budget carves out funds for the state’s low-income and disadvantaged areas. The CPUC issued a decision that established a $100 million equity resiliency budget to target vulnerable customers and customers operating critical facilities or critical infrastructure in high fire threat districts. More information on these funds can be found on the CPUC website and CalCom can also answer any questions during the webinar.

CalCOM is ACWA’s Preferred Provider for solar and battery services, providing a range of services to ACWA members including solar project development, integrated energy storage systems, interconnection services, engineering and construction, utility bill auditing and long-term asset management.

Questions about the SGIP funds and the webinar can be directed to ACWA Senior Regulatory Advocate Chelsea Haines at 916-441-4545.
