INTRO TO SOLAR
Solar electricity is no longer for sci-fi movies, satellites, and wealthy environmentalists. Improvements in technology, coupled with State and Federal incentives make solar a realistic option for many residences and businesses.

SOLAR ECONOMICS
What does solar electricity really cost? And what are the true benefits? With "net metering" and "time-of-use" and many other factors, it can get confusing. Here we discuss these issues in plain English.

IS SOLAR FOR ME?
Every person who considers solar electricity has different goals, requirements, location, etc. We try to break down the key factors you need to consider, so you can make an educated decision.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • If you have electric bills over $150/month, solar electricity is cheaper than PG&E.
  • Electricity prices have increased 7%/year on average over the past 20 years. Solar electricity rates never increase.
  • California and Federal rebates can cover up to 50% of the cost of solar panels and installation.
  • A typical residential solar electricity system will reduce CO2 emissions by 5,000 pounds EVERY YEAR.

Learn more about solar, understand the costs, find out if it's right for you, and then take the next step - setup an evaluation.
