Tax credits

The federal government offers tax credits for residential renewable energy expenditures. Solar (PV) systems qualify for the credit! The rates are a percentage of total system cost and are set to step down gradually until 2021, when the program ends. You can enjoy a tax credit of 30% through 2019. The rate goes down to 26% of system cost in 2020. Find out more about the Residential Renewable Energy Tax Credit.

No blackouts

Whether you are a hard working labor worker out in the field all day or someone in the office all day who enjoys things like lights,fresh air and air conditioning... producing your own electricity means that power is always available, even when the grid goes down. The entire block, city, or even state power grid could be powerless while your home is untouched. Rolling California blackouts? No problem!

Best area to have solar

plentiful sunshine

San Diego is home to the Padres, the Chargers... oh, wait... and... SUNSHINE!  And plenty of it!  San Diego (and much of the American Southwest, in general) is uniquely positioned to make the most of the sun's energy.  With beautiful sunshine almost everyday, San Diego residents can take full advantage of solar panel technology.

High electric rates

Unfortunately, San Diego residents pay higher electric rates than most Californians and most Americans for many reasons.  The higher electric rates mean that the cost savings of solar panels is even greater for San Diego residents.
