Southern California is known for being a sunny environment, and if you live in Calabasas you know that it’s no exception. There is an average of 284 sunny days per year in Calabasas, compared to the US average of 205. That’s why if you call Calabasas home, you need to go solar!
Passed by the governor, SB100 pushes California to be free of fossil fuels by 2045, and solar power can greatly help that cause. The city of Calabasas itself has even adopted initiatives to help save money and reduce fossil fuel usage by utilizing solar energy.
Your average-sized household and solar panel system for California (6-kilowatt) can save you up to $13,000 in the first six years, and up to $29,420 by the twentieth year! According to a recent report from the Berkeley Laboratory that covered 22,822 homes in six different states, the installation of solar panels can increase your home’s value by approximately $4 per watt! All of this while producing zero greenhouse gasses and consuming zero fossil fuels.
In addition to your average solar panel system, a solar storage battery can help in the event of power outages, increase your home’s self-sufficiency and maximize your solar investment! A solar battery storage system stores the excess energy produced by your system that would otherwise go to waste. This helps cover for cloudy days and the night and provides support during peak hours.
Smart battery storage systems like the Tesla Powerwall batteries have easy to use dashboards that allow you to control your system from your phone, computer or tablet. You can view your usage and adjust your storage based on your habits. With this information you can actually adjust to use the electric company’s utilities during off-peak hours and sell your surplus energy back during on-peak hours, generating a return of up to fifty three percent!
Living in Southern California has more benefits than beautiful weather and stunning vistas. The Los Angeles County PACE program enables homeowners to improve their houses with renewable energy without putting anyone money down! Calabasas residents can work with either the CaliforniaFirst or the HERO programs to finance the projects.
Working towards a greener environment and a brighter future should be easy for everyone.
