Space in the Solar Access program is limited to the solar capacity allocation from the California Public Utilities Commission, which is 1.736 megawatts (MW). SJCE estimates this capacity can serve ~700-800 customers. This estimate is based on the average energy usage of all CARE/FERA customers in PG&E territory.
Customers interested in enrolling in the program should apply online, by mail (business reply card), or by phone. Eligible customers will be added on a first come, first served basis until the program’s capacity (1.736 megawatts (MW)) is reached. If capacity is not reached by June 1, 2022, then SJCE will begin randomly selecting eligible customers for enrollment.
As enrolled customers move, unenroll, or otherwise become ineligible, spots in the program will open. Therefore, SJCE will continue to accept applications after June 1, 2022. Customers who apply after June 1, 2022, will be placed on a waitlist and enrolled into the program on a first come, first served basis as spots become available. Customers on the waitlist will be enrolled into the program before randomly selected customers.
All customers will be notified of their application status via email or mail.
