California Solar Initiative Workshops

The PUC's California Solar Initiative (CSI) decision anticipated a number of workshops to explore outstanding program issues.

  • December 18, 2013:  Workshops on AB 217 – MASH Program and PBI Acceleration

    The CSI program administrators (PAs) hosted two workshops on Wednesday December 18th at PG&E’s Pacific Energy Center in San Francisco. Specifically, the two items discussed at these workshops were: 1) proposed changes to the Performance Based Incentive (PBI) program and 2) the implementation of Assembly Bill 217 (Bradford, 2013) for the Multifamily Affordable Solar Housing (MASH) program. These workshops did not discuss the implementation of or details about the other portions of the CSI program.
