Solar energy El Cajon
Looking for the best solar contractor in El Cajon who will evaluate your specific electrical demand and be able to custom fit a solar system that will work best for you?
With its unique micro-climate of arid Mediterranean temperatures, El Cajon is an ideal location to switch from a traditional “on-the-grid system to a solar-powered home”, which will harness the power of our beautiful sunny days to take care of your electrical needs. With rising energy costs and a finite supply of fossil fuels, not only can you reduce your energy bill and switch to a renewable and clean energy system, but you can also opt for a system that allows you to “sell back” or receive credit for the energy your system generates during peak hours. Our contractors understand solar needs in El Cajon because we are a local company with technicians who live in the San Diego area!
How much will a solar system cost me?

You can also take advantage of solar tax credits available to California residents.

Our technicians also understand that many neighborhoods have HOA restrictions on where panels can be located, so you can be confident that our solar providers know what will be acceptable for your home. Our solar panel installation will meet the HOA requirement, so you do not need to worry about not adhering to those restrictions.

Battery Storage in El Cajon
Do you want to be able to store the energy your solar panels provide to your home during the day while you are not there to use the bulk of the solar energy production for a time that will be the most useful to you?
Sounds pretty cool, right?
Take the most advantage of SDGE’s Time of Use program and the power of your solar panels by installing a customized battery bank for your home. Time of use rates during the peak hours of 4pm – 9pm can be significantly more costly than during other times of the day, when most homeowners are at work or school. With a battery system installed from one of the two of the best companies currently on the market, Tesla, and LG, you can store your solar power energy that your solar panels generate during peak sunshine hours, which are generally when we are out of our homes, and use that stored energy for use during the peak hours. You will pay less or even nothing at all for using your appliances, computers, and televisions during those peak evening hours when you are home relaxing because you can easily switch to your stored power. You can also confidently run your air conditioning knowing your energy is coming from your own solar panels and battery storage system. Switching to your battery storage is very simple, and you can even do it from an app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Is the cost of adding batteries to my solar panel system worth it?
With the power you will store during the day, to then use during the evening or on rainy days, you can be confident the batteries will be an asset to your home solar system. In addition, the batteries will add resale value to your home should you choose to move.
With a battery system, you can maximize your investment and get the biggest return.
