Statewide incentives for energy storage

Humboldt County Homes and Businesses are eligible for incentives provided by the California Public Utilities Commission’s (CPUC) Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP)   

RCEA encourages our customers to take advantage of rebates available for a limited time for installing energy storage technology such as batteries at homes, businesses, and public facilities. Energy storage can reduce utility bills and keep the lights on during a power outage.

The Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) helps reduce customer energy consumption, reduces overall demand on the grid, and helps cut greenhouse gas emissions. These reductions also help make our electricity system more reliable by utilizing distributed energy resource technologies.

Rebates from SGIP are going fast; reach out to an approved developer soon to reserve any potential incentives.

RCEA is negotiating a contract with one of the approved developers, Swell Energy, to implement a program specifically for our Community Choice Energy customers which would add value to the SGIP. Swell Energy is just one of the developers under SGIP, and they will be working with local companies for installation.


The SGIP provides financial incentives for the installation of new qualifying technologies that are installed to meet all or a portion of the electric energy needs of a home or business.

Please view the Program Metrics page for available incentive funds in each service territory and budget category.

As of September 1, 2020, over $26 million of incentives had been reserved in Humboldt County for residential, commercial, Tribal, and Public Facilities.

To check if you qualify and begin the application process, contact one of the developers listed below, visit or call Swell Energy at (800) 898- 1832.
