Transcript of "Molly sterkel into the final steps"

  1. 1.
  2. 2. 2<br />California Solar Initiative (CSI)<br />California has:<br />Over 700 MW installed PV statewide<br />387 MW installed under CSI Program since 2007<br />Over 75,000+ solar installations statewide<br />36,000 + installed under CSI Program since 2007<br />Over 2/3rds of nation’s solar market<br />A rebate program that funds solar installations on the customer-side of the meter<br />Launched in 2007<br />But built upon CA solar rebate programs available since 1998<br />A growing solar market<br />Over 1,000+ solar contractors<br />Installations growing every year<br />A range of solar policies <br />Net Energy Metering<br />Interconnection<br />Tiered Rate Structures<br />+ other policies for wholesale solar<br />
  3. 3. 3<br />California Solar Initiative is Part of Statewide Solar Program Offering: Go Solar California<br />Goals of Go Solar California<br /><ul><li> Electric: 3,000 MW of new customer-owned distributed solar statewide
  4. 4. Gas: 585 million therms
  5. 5. Self-sustaining solar industry free from ratepayer funded incentives</li></ul>Budget <br /><ul><li>Electric: $3.3 billion budget (2007-2016) split across programs throughout state
  6. 6. Gas: $250 million (2010-2017) </li></ul>3<br />
  7. 7. 4<br />Other CSI Program Components<br />Single-family Affordable Solar Homes (SASH) Program<br />Provides higher rebate to low income customers in deed-restricted single-family residences<br />Large workforce development component<br />Multifamily Affordable Solar Housing (MASH) Program<br />Provides higher rebate to multifamily affordable housing in deed restricted multi-family residences<br />Provides access to Virtual Net Metering pilot tariff for splitting bill credit<br />RD&D Program (www.CalSolarResearch.org)<br />Provides up to $50 million in a program for projects related to CSI goals<br />First round solicitation proposed award winners announced<br />Second round of funding proposals will be announced in July<br />CSI-Thermal Program<br />New in 2010: Provides up to $350 million for solar water heating and solar heating/cooling technologies<br />Started accepting applications in May 2010, replaces a San Diego pilot<br />
  8. 8. 5<br />Key Aspects of CSI Program Design<br />Statewide eligibility guidelines<br />Warranty Requirements<br />Eligible Equipment<br />Performance-Based Rebates<br />Incentives paid based on expected or actual performance<br />Incentive payments adjusted based on the design installation characteristics<br />Declining Incentives <br />Rebate levels drop based on program demand, not calendar dates or budget availability<br />Photo: Brian Peterson, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Chico, CA<br />California Solar Initiative Funded System, 1,258 kW, September 2007<br />Installer: Chico Electric <br />
  9. 9. 6<br />Statewide Solar Installations (9/8/10)<br />
  10. 10. 7<br />Installed Solar Projects (#) by Year thru 2009<br />Data: Installed Solar PV projects at Customer-Sites by year in California’s Investor-Owned Utility Territories (PG&E, SCE, SDG&E). Does not include projects in publicly owned utility territories. Does not include wholesale PV projects or any projects used to directly serve utility load, such as Renewable Portfolio Standard projects.<br />Source: California Public Utilities Commission, April 2010.<br />
  11. 11. 8<br />Installed Solar Capacity (MW) by Year thru 2009<br />Data: Installed Solar PV megawatts (MW) at Customer-Sites by year in California’s Investor-Owned Utility Territories (PG&E, SCE, SDG&E). Does not include projects in publicly owned utility territories. Does not include wholesale PV projects or any projects used to directly serve utility load, such as Renewable Portfolio Standard projects.<br />Source: California Public Utilities Commission, April 2010.<br />
  12. 12. 9<br />CSI Program Data (thru 9/8/2010)<br />Total Incentives available in CSI program: $1,707 million<br />
  13. 13. 10<br />Post-CSI?<br />CSI is nearing the end of its budget, but new applicants and program dropouts change budget status daily<br />www.CaliforniaSolarStatistics.ca.gov<br />CSI will continue as a program with a waitlist, even after the budget in a particular territory and customer sector is exhausted<br />Lower steps cost program least, expected to obtain the most MWs<br />CSI will reach the end of its budget at 6 different times: <br />PG&E, SCE, and SDG&E areas each have different budgets for non-residential and residential sectors<br />Other key solar policies continue: Net Energy Metering and Interconnection<br />
