Starting in January, 2007, PV rebates given through the CPUC California Solar Initiative will change from the current capacity-based payments to performance-based incentives that reward properly installed and maintained solar systems. The incentives will be determined according to the system size, as follows:

• For photovoltaic systems greater than or equal to 100 kilowatts in size, incentives will be paid monthly based on the actual energy produced for a period of five years. This incentive path is called Performance Based Incentives (PBI). Systems of any size may elect to opt into the PBI program. In addition, building integrated systems (BIPV), regardless of size, are
required to participate in the PBI program.

• Incentives for all systems less than 100 kilowatts will initially be paid a onetime, up-front incentive based on expected system performance. Expected performance will be calculated based on equipment ratings and installation factors, such as geographic location, tilt, orientation and shading. This type of incentive is called Expected Performance-Based Buy down (EPBB).
Residential and commercial incentives will receive up to $2.50 per watt, depending on their location, tilt, orientation, and other installation factors. Government and non-profit organizations will receive a higher incentive (up to $3.25 per watt) to compensate for their lack of access to the federal tax credit.

The incentive payment levels will automatically be reduced over the duration of the CSI program in 10 steps, based on the volume of MW of confirmed reservations issued within each utility service territory. On average, the CSI incentives are
projected to decline at a rate of 7 percent each year following the start of implementation in 2007. The incentives will gradually phase out over the 10 steps.

Beginning January 1, 2007, consumers seeking photovoltaic incentives for all existing residential, and new and existing commercial, industrial, and agricultural properties should apply to the program administrator in your local area:
