Help Choose ! SGIP Resilience or General Market Program ?

Good news i am getting my two powerwalks and solar (Large) installed in two weeks ! I had ordered them two months back

I live in a Riskzone 2 (Castro Valley, CA) and have medical baseline, so I understood i would qualify for the resilience program, correct. Heard from Tesla, the program is full in PGE territory and that i would be on a waitlist.

Other option they mentioned was to go with soon to be opened general market program which gives 2350 per power wall.

I was wondering what the chances are for the resilience program to be filled up in the future while i am on the waitlist. dont mind waiting 1-2 years if needed. But if the chances are lower should i go for the general market ?

I dont have access to either one of those... but the equity and resilience program basically buys a powerwall from what I read here (11k+) pretty large difference between 11k+ and "2350" for whatever the "general market" one is... and I have no idea what that is unless its the regular SGIP that "everyone " gets to apply for.

If it is, you would be behind a bunch of other people in tesla's line (everyone that installed earlier this year". 11k vs 2.3k is a lot of reasons to wait....

Resiliency is a good sized waitlist at this point, it was full over a month ago. You are quite unlikely to get that.

I would go with general market as you can probably still get that.

I think the only general market program that has funds is the large scale program (requires 3x or more powerwalls). The small scale general market one has a long waitlist, and it will likely be exhausted of funds before your turn comes up.
