In preparation for the next wildfire season, the California Public Utilities Commission 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.
Starting in fall 2021, PG&E’s Empower EV program will offer special financial incentives of up to $2,500 per income-eligible household to cover the cost of purchasing or installing electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment.
