Southern California Solar Panel Installation
What are the Benefits of Switching to Solar in CA?
Whether you own a home or business in California, there are countless benefits to going solar. Not only does it provide the immediate benefit of reducing or eliminating your utility bill, but it can also increase the overall value of your property.
With solar technology, you yield a fast return on your investment. You can also benefit from a 30% federal tax credit and state solar panel rebates.
- Need another reason to go solar? Consider the following benefits:
- Solar panels provide long-term financial savings
- Solar panels increase the overall value of your property
- Solar panels will reduce or even eliminate your energy bill
- Solar panels will significantly reduce your tax liability
It is such a tremendous investment that beginning in 2020, all new homes built in California are going to be required to have solar installed, as voted in by the Energy Commission.
2019 California Solar Net Metering Updates
All individuals going solar in California will now be signed up for NEM 2.0, aka: Net Energy Metering 2.0, because every major utility company within California, aside from LADWP, has hit their cap for net metering. This 20-year contract with the utility company defines two things:
- How much you will pay them for interconnection, usually just a small fee
- How much they will pay you for any excess solar energy produced by your system
Those with LADWP who are going solar will still sign a regular net metering contract, giving you the full price for electricity that your panels feed into the grid and there are no additional fees.
Essentially, no matter what your arrangement is with net metering, going solar will save you money on your energy bills each month!

What Types of Actions Contribute to a Person’s Carbon Footprint?
Greenhouse gases are emitted through actions that people complete on a daily basis.
Some of these activities include:
- Heating the house
- Using the air conditioner
- Using the dryer
Of course, all of the activities have one thing in common. They function completely or partially off electricity. Since a solar panel system functions as an alternate energy source, these systems can help a person reduce their carbon footprint.
Can Solar Panels Help Reduce a Person’s Carbon Footprint?
Most solar panels have a lifespan of at least 30 years. This means that once the installation of a system is complete, the environment benefits for at least three decades to follow. In this amount of time, a home with a solar system provides the following equivalent environmental benefits:
- 3,030 trees are planted
- 22 vehicles are removed from the road every year
- 41 tons of waste is recycled instead of landfilled
- 1.6 tanker trucks of gasoline are not burned
- 0.6 railcars of coal are not burned
It is apparent that solar can not only save a person money spent on everyday utilities, but it can also help reduce their carbon footprint.
