The California Senate passed a bill on Thursday that extends the state’s leading program for behind-the-meter storage — the Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) — after the state Assembly approved it on Wednesday. S.B. 700, which adds nearly 3 GW to the SGIP, is headed to the desk of Gov. Jerry Brown for his signature, having been passed by the state Senate on August 16. Under current law, the SGIP program expires at the end of 2019. The bill extends the program five years to 2026 and refreshed funding to the $800 million level.
