California solar incentives and net metering, 2019
Is net metering available in California? It depends on your utility. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) requires the three private (investor-owned) utilities in Calfornia to offer net metering: San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), and Southern California Edison (SCE). This rule by CPUC does not apply to municipal utilities in the state. However, the largest municipal utility in the state, the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (LADWP), does offer net metering to its customers.
