While individuals like you have the opportunity to hire a San Diego solar installer for a personal solar energy system at home, First Solar, Inc. recently broke ground on a massive project to utilize solar in San Diego called Solar Gen 2. Around 800 construction workers are assigned to the project, which is expected to be complete by July 2014.
San Diego solar has been growing for the past decade, and it’s only going to get bigger as time goes by. With so many applications (residences, businesses, grand utility-scale installations), solar has nowhere to go but up.
Finding a solar company San Diego homeowners can turn to is likely to be easier than ever given the likelihood the solar energy sector will continue to expand throughout the state. That is thanks to state legislators whose recent actions have made it even more likely California will retain its renewable energy crown as the nation’s leading solar power force.
It’s hot outside and you have central air conditioning, but with the recently increased electricity rates, you decide it’s better to suffer in the heat than pay an outrageous bill. You’re considering contacting a San Diego solar installer so you can enjoy A/C guilt free once again, but you’re not sure if you’re ready to make the switch.
It’s obvious that higher energy use results in higher utility bills, but this month, saving energy is even more important. It’s the perfect time to consider solar in San Diego because of the rate increase that took effect Sept. 1, 2013 for Tier 3 and 4 customers (which includes all San Diego businesses and about one-fourth of residential customers).
The Mayor of Escondido, Sam Abed, and members of the Escondido Rotary Club “got their solar on” during a recent Baker Electric Solar educational lunch ‘n learn workshop. Our solar consultants covered the ABCs of solar and were ready and willing to field attendees’ questions.
