This incentive is for 50% of the qualifying costs, up to $3 million; or, up to $5 million for a dairy cluster of at least three dairy digesters. Further information, including the definition of a qualifying cost, may be found in Tariff Rule 39.
Please note that this Advice Letter was filed jointly with the gas utilities in California (SoCalGas, SDG&E, PG&E and Southwest Gas); therefore, you will see references to other utilities; and, was authorized by the PUC in D19-12-009*.
Applications will be accepted starting February 3rd, 2020; however, the Detailed Engineering Study must be fully funded and executed before the CPUC will award a reservation.
When you have completed the application, email it to BioMethaneIncentiveReservation@SoCalGas.com. Upon receipt of your application, SoCalGas will verify that a Detailed Engineering Study has been fully executed and funded. Upon verification, your application will be delivered to the Energy Division of the California Public Utilities Commission and placed on the reservation queue.
