Elsewhere? Possibly. Not here in with solar in Dublin, CA, It may get there eventually. 


In the meantime,:

  1. We get grandfathered for 20 years. 
  2. PG&E thanks us for becoming solution to a problem. 
  3. The grid benefits from our help. 
  4. Solar installation allows us to become mini-energy factories supporting the grid rather than strictly consumers who buy buy buy. 
  5. It becomes more of a give and take mutual partnership with limited seating. 


This means less transmission and distribution fees, right? 


  • In summer during the daytime is also when sun is high and mighty. This is when we sell at Summertime Rates. 
  • In winter, we will buy this energy back at a lower cost per kWh.


Solar is a solution.

Utility companies have a spike of demand on the grid during certain days of the year. This spike takes place when we produce great amounts of electricity from our solar. Eventually, utilities will have a better balance of supply to demand, but in the meantime, the emergency energy is not just the dirtiest energy, but it also costs more.

Can you imagine a scenario where the family purchasing your home does not use electricity? 


We have a list of realtors with proven success in solar. 


I have personally helped several families who sold their homes with solar. The realtors we worked with were very affirmative as solar loans transferred with ease and were a selling point on MLS. 


It‘s a bill we have to pay anyways. Why not start saving today and set up future home buyer with lower monthly payments, a fixed cost and become grandfathered in for 20 years?
