Learn How to Get Solar Power in California

Californians pay 46 percent more for their power than the national average, which seems a bit outrageous. Why does it cost so much more? The truth is, Californians are often paying a number of added fees on their power bill for transmitting power from other states, importing as much as 33 percent every year.

This adds significant costs that can be avoided through looking into renewable energy options.

Learn How to Potentially Reduce Your Power Bill

Not all is lost. California’s SB 350 requires the state to procure 50% of electricity from renewable energy and double energy efficiency savings by 2030. There are a number of ways you can reduce your power bill.

California Solar Incentives, Tax Credits and Rebates

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP), provides incentives to support renewable energy sources like solar. SGIP also provides rebates for qualifying distributed energy systems that get installed on your side of the utility meter.
