Hello All, I am contemplating a Powerwall setup for my new 4000 square foot office building for backup and load shifting once we switch to TOU on LADWP. A private reseller confirmed that Tier 2 SGIP monies are available even for commercial LADWP customers as long as the batteries discharge on average 75% each month and aren’t used just as backup. The resellers charge between 20%~30% more than Tesla but the SGIP rebate can mean up to several thousand dollars per PW unit and they do ALL of the paperwork. Assuming I’m willing to wait 9-12’months for my install with Tesla, do we get SGIP rebate (not to be confused with Fed Tax rebate for PW/Solar setups) when buying from Tesla? Do they have access to the SGIP fund and if so, do they handle the paperwork for you?
