Turlock Irrigation District (TID) offers an incentive program to their customers who install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. In keeping with the terms of the California Solar Initiative, the incentive payment levels will decline over the life of the program in 10 steps as certain MW levels of PV systems are installed within the District. As of July 2014, the residential incentive is on the 8th step at $0.73 per watt AC of installed capacity, and the commercial program is fully subscribed. Residential systems 30 kW or larger will receive a performance-based incentive (PBI) for the actual electricity produced by the system. PBI payments are made monthly for a period of 5 years.
All existing customers will be required to have an energy efficiency audit conducted for their home or business as part of the PV reservation. This audit will be provided by TID.
