California’s Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP)
The California Self-Generation Incentive Program enables homeowners and businesses to receive additional incentives for installing battery energy storage equipment for storing electricity.
Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC)
The ITC incentive is a tax credit that applies to federal income taxes, which are a percentage of the total cost of the solar energy system or solar and paired battery storage system installed. For systems installed in 2020, the ITC is worth 26% – in 2021, the ITC is 22%. This credit is discontinued in 2022.
