GoSolarSF Incentive

Solar panels atop Alvarado Elementary School

To propel the City of San Francisco into the clean energy future, the City launched GoSolarSF, a program that provides a monetary incentive to help residents and businesses install solar panels on rooftops across San Francisco. GoSolarSF reduces participants’ electricity bills and shrinks the City’s carbon footprint. Whether you’re a residential customer or commercial installer, we’re here to assist you with the process.

Residential Customers

To be eligible for the GoSolarSF program, participants must be enrolled in the CleanPowerSF program or be an existing Hetch Hetchy Power customer.

Residents must also choose an installer from a certified list.

Low-Income Customers

If you are a low-income homeowner, you can save up to 100% off the installed cost of a solar electric system. Learn more about our partnership with GRID Alternatives. 

Not sure if you qualify as a low-income customer? Determine your eligibility under California’s Single-Family Affordable Solar Homes (SASH) program. If you don’t qualify under SASH, GoSolarSF also offers an incentive for low-income, non-SASH applicants.

Apply Today!

Customers must have a contract with an installer prior to application. Installers handle the online GoSolarSF application for their customers so please contact your installer for assistance. If you have further questions please contact the GoSolarSF office at
