The single biggest reason why homeowners all across California are having solar panels installed on their homes is to save money. The amount that can be saved over the life of a solar energy system in California is in the tens of thousands of dollars. In fact, most people end up saving over $2,000 a year, with the total savings often reaching $50,000 or more. And that’s after the cost of installing solar panels.
Year after year, residents and business owners in CA are being forced to pay higher costs for their electricity.
But when you have solar panels to power your home or company, those increased costs are negligible, even if you use more energy than your panels provide (which is itself rare).
What this means, though, is that those savings discussed above are likely to reach even higher as those kWh electricity costs increase.
This is especially true if you take part in your electricity company’s net metering program, which will pay you for your excess energy – the amount you’re paid for that extra power will increase as well!
There are a ton of incentives available to homeowners in the area who get solar panels installed.
These come through a variety of channels, including state rebate programs, tax credits, power company programs, and much more.

Just like you want to install solar panels on your home, people looking to buy homes in California see solar panels as a huge benefit when they’re looking to make a purchase. Because of that, homes powered by solar energy will sell for prices far higher than those without solar panels. On average, a solar power system on a home in California will increase its sale price by around $15,000.
One of the things traditional energy providers try to say to get people away from solar power is that the cost of panel installation is way too high.
The thing is, there are a number of financing options available, including extremely low-interest rates – all the way down to zero percent in some cases.
What those traditional power companies won’t tell you, though, is that even with the (low) cost of financed solar panel installation, you’ll still wind up spending less on your electricity than ever before.
While most people have solar panels installed to save money on their electricity bills, there’s still a lot to be said about using a power source that doesn’t negatively impact the environment.
In California, we get some of the highest rates of irradiance in the country. With all that energy blasting down on us on a daily basis, it’s time we all start using it to our advantage.
