Save on Upgrades with the Technology Incentives Program
How’s this two-for-the-price-of-one offer: When you purchase certain automated equipment that helps you synch up with SDG&E demand-response measures, you’ll save money. Our Technology Incentives Program offers incentives for the purchase and installation of qualified automated demand-response measures that provide verified, dispatchable, on-peak load reduction at customer-owned facilities.
Eligible customers can receive up to $200 per kilowatts (kW) of verified, dispatchable, fully automated on-peak load reduction. The total incentive is limited to 75% of the total project cost.

The Technology Incentive Program’s incentives are paid on a first-come, first served basis until program funds are no longer available or until the Technology Incentive Program is terminated, whichever comes first. The Program is administered by SDG&E under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission and may be modified or terminated at any time.
