Spend less on electricity. With solar, you can offset most or even all of your electricity bill, so you pay virtually nothing. If you’re a PG&E customer, you’ll save enough to pay back the cost of your solar system in just 5-7 years.
Avoid big summer bills. If you have solar, you don’t get a monthly power bill.w Instead, your power company reconciles the power you generate with the power you use. At the end of the year, you get one bill for net power consumption. For most people, it will be very small or even zero.
Save on charging your electric car. If you have an electric vehicle and charge at home, solar power is one of the best ways to offset the costs. The more electricity you use, the more you can save.
Increase your home value. Each 1-kilowatt (kW) increase in rooftop solar capacity adds $5,911 to a home’s resale value.*
