SASH is a $108 million dollar program created as part of a state law requiring that 10% of all California Solar Initiative (CSI) projects reach low-income communities. SASH is administered by the nonprofit organization Grid Alternatives and is open to customers of the three major utilities in the state – PG&E, SDG&E, and SCE. The program fully subsidizes a 1 kW solar system for single-family owner-occupied households whose household income is at or below 50 percent of the area median income (AMI). Partial subsidies are available for households with incomes less than 80% of AMI. Over 2,800 projects have been installed providing 8.7 MW of solar energy, with 1.8 MW of solar capacity left to install.
