Resilience and Distributed Energy Programs

Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) is committed to providing our customers with clean, affordable and reliable electricity.

Customer Resiliency Programs

Homeowners and businesses throughout Santa Clara County will have the opportunity to participate in programs to help install battery storage, solar, and/or other clean power technologies for their home or business. These Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) are typically small-scale, on-site electricity generation and/or management systems. If you are a local customer interested in DERs and want to be notified about any future programs, please complete the form at the bottom of this page. If you’d like to learn more about solar and battery storage, please visit the Battery Storage Assistant.

Lights On Silicon Valley

We have selected Sunrun to develop a network of customer-sited solar and storage systems across our community through Lights On Silicon Valley. These systems will provide customers with resilience during outages and can also be used by SVCE to provide benefits to the grid during the rest of the year. A rebate will be available for our customers who elect to enroll their system. Find out more using the button below!

Community Resilience Program

SVCE’s Community Resilience Program aims to help our region reduce impacts of power outages from events such as earthquakes, PG&E’s Public Safety Power Shutoff’s, floods and wildfires while supporting decarbonization and local job creation. In collaboration with our member agencies and local stakeholders, the program will assess, identify, prioritize and implement resilient energy strategies across our territory.

Member Agencies

SVCE member agencies can apply for capital project grant funds. Please note that the grant and application is only open to SVCE member agencies. These are one-time funds, to help ensure coordination within jurisdictions, the City Manager or Chief Executive Office (in the case of the County of Santa Clara) must approve and sign the application before it is submitted.
