Why go Solar in California

Solar Energy in The Golden State

California’s beautiful weather is perfect not only for fun in the sun, but also for solar. According to the SEIA (Solar Energy Industry Association), California takes first place in the U.S. for solar. Beginning in 2020, all new homes built in California will be required to have solar. 

What solar incentives are available in California?

In addition to drastically reducing or eliminating your electric bills and contributing to a cleaner environment you can also benefit from local and federal solar energy incentives.

Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC)

The Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a federal tax credit for qualified customers who purchase solar energy systems for residential properties. The credit is worth 26% of the total cost of the system and is applied to the homeowners income tax. In 2023 the ITC will be increase to 30% until 2032.  


Net-metering is a utility billing system that offers a credit to residential and business customers who are making excess electricity with their solar systems and sending it back to the grid. California homeowners with solar are able to sell back the excess energy produced by their system.

Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP)

Provided by the California Public Utilities Commission Commercial (CPUC), the Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) is designed to encourage homeowners and local businesses to install technologies that reduce their reliance on the grid.

The SGIP rebate is one of the best solar incentives in the nation and it is only available in California. Rebate amounts are about $350 per kilowatt hour, or a battery storage incentive that covers 35% of the cost of the energy storage system.

Property Tax Exemption

Unlike other home improvements like new kitchens, additions or pools, California homeowners never have to worry about the government adding  property taxes to their home when they install a solar energy and backup battery system.

Solar for Affordable Housing
The CSI Single-Family Affordable Solar Homes (SASH) Program provides an up-front incentive to help low-income single family households with the initial costs of going solar.

California also provides a similar incentive known as Multifamily Affordable Solar Housing (MASH) program.
