Gas

*SoCalGas Step 1 rates apply for systems installed between April 15, 2016 and December 31, 2016 only. Applications that do not have a final sign-off permit date in this timeframe will default to the appropriate step for the remaining budget. Applicants will have to submit an Incentive Claim Form by February 28, 2017. Funds will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis based on ICF Submit date.

Qualifying low income projects will apply under the Low Income program but will receive the temporary higher incentive rate. If the system is not installed within the eligible time frame, applicants will default back to Low Income program rates.

Funds for Step 1SCG Single Family program have been exhausted. SoCalGas will honor Step 1 SCG rates only for applications which meet the following conditions. A) The application has documentation from the building department confirming a Permit Request date on or before October 7, 2016 and B) the system is installed on or before December 31, 2016 based on final building permit sign off date. Single Family applications with a Permit Request date after October 7, 2016 will be returned to draft and contractors will have the option to reapply under Step 2 rates.
