What is Solar for Our Communities?
SDCP’s solar programs are designed to increase local, new-build, small-scale solar projects in disadvantaged communities (DAC), or communities of concern, as defined by CalEnviroScreen 4.0.
SDCP is seeking developers interested in both programs as well as non-profit community-based organizations (CBOs), schools and government entities* willing to sponsor specific projects for the Community Solar Program that will help reduce residents’ long-term energy costs and create a more sustainable future for the greater San Diego region.
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has allocated 15.78 megawatts (MWs) of solar generation for the SDCP Solar Discount Program, which is formally known as the Disadvantaged Community Green Tariff (DAC-GT). The CPUC has also allocated 4.38 MWs for the SDCP Community Solar Program, referred to by the CPUC as the Community Solar Green Tariff (CSGT).
