CSI Incentives Budget Report

The tables below summarize the committed and remaining budgets for the California Solar Initiative, and include estimates of how far the remaining budget will last through the step table, as well as the amount of additional funding necessary to achieve program goals. These tables have been created to meet the requirements defined in ordering paragraphs 5 and 6 of CPUC decision (D.) 10-09-046.

This report is updated weekly and is current as of Jan. 22, 2020.

Notes:

1. "Confirmed" projects are those that have reached or surpassed the Reservation Reserved, Confirmed Reservation, or Pending RFP status in PowerClerk and are not Delisted (i.e., not Cancelled or Withdrawn). Dollars indicate PBI-related incentive commitments.

2. "Under Review" projects are those that are currently in Reservation Request Review or Suspended - Reservation Review status in PowerClerk and are not Delisted (i.e., Cancelled or Withdrawn). Dollars indicate PBI-related incentive commitments.

3. "Remaining Funds" indicates the difference between the "Allocated Funds" and the sum of the "Confirmed" and "Under Review" projects. The presence of "Remaining Funds" for a given Program Administrator does not mean that funds are available to incentivize additional projects. The "Remaining Funds" are dedicated to meeting existing PBI incentive commitments, which may be greater than forecasted due to higher than expected performance, including elevated performance by PV systems with tracking systems.

4. "To Reach Goals from Confirmed Incremental" is the amount of incentive dollars needed to reach sector-specific program goals assuming all "Confirmed" and "Under Review" projects are completed.

5. Unless otherwise noted, all incentive dollar fields include an adjustment upwards for PBI projects, by 6% for SCE, 8% for CSE and 7.5% for PG&E, to account for higher than expected performance (per the CSI 2009 Impact Evaluation). Please note, PG&E decreased their adjustment from 7.7% to 7.5% on January 25, 2014 based on review of PV system performance in recent years within PG&E’s territory.

6. "Funding Surplus" shows the difference between “Allocated Funds” and “Total to Reach Goals”. A negative value indicates a shortfall in funding to meet a program's goals.

7. Values shown include capacity and incentives from CSI Thermal Electric and Non-PV generating technologies, as shown in the tables below.

Notes:

13. Please note the actual step change date may vary slightly from what is shown in Table 7 due to timing of project cancelations and reservation request reviews. In accordance with CPUC decisions that provided for a transition between the SGIP and the CSI, Step 1 was fully reserved in 2006 under the Self Generation Incentive Program, which was only open to non-residential projects. The 50 MW in Step 1 were not allocated across the utilities, and were therefore reserved on a first come, first served basis. Although almost all Step 1 MW were reserved by non- residential entities, Program Administrators later reallocated Step 1 dropouts into both residential and non-residential categories. The CPUC adopted “step table” commenced in advance of the actual program launch on January 1, 2007. This is the reason why there are Step changes before the launch of the CSI program in 2006. For more information about CSI Steps, Incentive Rates, etc. please see www.csi-trigger.com
