Solar Saves You Money in More Ways Than One

Break even on your investment in as little as 3 years!


By generating your own electric power you will reduce your reliance on your local power utility. This will provide insulation from inflation and future utility rate hikes. You can save thousands of dollars annually for years to come.

A solar electric system for your home is typically an excellent investment that pays for itself and offers exceptional ROI (Return on investment)


In California, a small 3.1 kilowatt (kW) system can add an average of $18,324 to the value of a medium-sized home, whereas installing 5kW of solar panels adds an average of $29,555 to the retail value of a medium-sized home.

As a future seller, can demand a higher asking price for your home, reduce exposure time on the market listings (sell your home (on average) 20x faster).



Net metering is where the amount of energy you buy in from the grid and the amount of excess solar energy you export to the grid are recorded separately and you are only billed for the net of these two numbers. 

If you buy in 1000 kWh of electricity over a month at times when your solar is either not generating (night time or cloudy day), but you export 500 kWh of energy to the grid in the same month when your solar is producing more energy than your house is using, then you would be billed for only 500 kWh.

Dirk and his company exceeded all of my expectations. The price was phenomenal, the installation was flawless, and the system operates better that expected. We used to pay between $200-$300 per month on electricity. Our bill is now anywhere from $0-$10. Thanks San Diego Solar.
