Program Upgrading Our Electric Grid and Ensuring Reliability and Resiliency

This program is designed to provide federal financial assistance to demonstrate innovative approaches to transmission, storage, and distribution infrastructure to harden and enhance resilience and reliability; and to demonstrate new approaches to enhance regional grid resilience. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP)

In preparation for the next wildfire season, the CPUC has authorized funding of more than $1 billion through 2024 for SGIP. This funding includes prioritization of communities living in high fire-threat areas, communities that have experienced two or more utility Public Safety Power Shut-off (PSPS) events, as well as low-income and medically vulnerable customers. The funds are also available for “critical facilities” that support community resilience in the event of a PSPS or wildfire. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. 


Grants for Energy Improvements at Public School Facilities

The U.S. Department of Energy recently announced first-of-its-kind investments to make clean energy improvements at K-12 public schools. Funds will position school districts to make upgrades that will lower facilities’ energy costs and foster healthier learning environments for students. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. 


PG&E Community Microgrid Enablement Program (CMEP)

This program helps facilitate the development of front-of-the-meter, multi-customer microgrids in while also providing tools and information for all forms of resilience solutions against power shut-offs and other emergency grid situations. Contact PG&E for more information.
