Utility Rebates For the State of California, the new California State Incentive (CSI) program began in January 2007. The CSI rebates are available to both Residential and Commercial Customers of PG&E, SDREO, and SCE. Other Utilities, such as SMUD, do not have access to CSI rebates, but they may have their own Solar funding. To find out more about your particular area, please feel free to access the Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy (DSIRE) or the Go Solar California site:

As of 2013, the CSI rebate for PG&E has run out of funds.
