Temecula Residents Save with Solar Power
The high number of sunny days (in excess of 250) in Temecula make it an ideal place to invest in solar panels. Thanks to the high temperatures and sunny days from Murrieta, to Midland, to Riverside and everything in between, residential rooftop solar panels are being installed at a staggering rate.
We all know going solar is one way to help save the planet, but did you know it can also save you a lot of money? Once you’ve installed solar panels on your home, you’ll see an immediate decrease in your electric bills. The higher energy costs are in your area, the more savings you’ll see. Those monthly savings really add up, too the lifetime savings of a system in Southern California right now is over $25,000.
Instead of sending your money to the utility company every month you’ll be able to control your own energy production by installing solar panels on your home. Right now, your electric company is saving thousands of dollars a year by selling your solar energy. Semper Solaris will help pass these savings on to you, giving you the path to financial freedom for years to come.
We fully support Inland Empire’s commitment to clean energy, serving as a leading example for the rest of the world to follow.
Serviced by Southern California Edison residents and business owners in Temecula will receive net metering. Net metering means utilities must credit you for each kWh of unused power exported to the grid at their retail power rate. When more energy is exported than drawn credit is still provided at the retail power rate to future bills. At the end of the yearly cycle remaining credit is deposited into your account at about 3-4 cents per kWh.
Unfortunately, the new net metering rules mean customers must switch to time of use billing to go solar, however, this only damages returns by about 10% making solar still a worthwhile investment. The federal ITC allows for 30% of the system cost to be claimed as a deduction to federal taxes, there is also no limit to the size a system can be to receive this incentive.
Why Should Your Solar Company Be Local to Temecula?
Knowledge of your local community is a key factor when it comes to properly install a solar panel system. Every city or town in the Inland Empire has its own permitting process and building codes for installing rooftop solar panels. Taking the time to find a solar company that has experience working within your city limits can prevent any mistakes and save you countless hours and dollars.
