Solar in Los Angeles

California has been the recent leading hand in most any environmental push for a healthier earth. Pushed forward and the agenda has been solar energy, not just for big companies who soak in green energy, but for the average homeowner who wants to eliminate their energy bill.

Los Angeles solar savings are at $38,397, per homeowner over the course of 20 years. That’s an impressive number considering that included in that number are many homeowners who don’t do their research, don’t take their time. Take a moment to imagine your home it’s, individual footprint, what solar savings it could have with a few panels working passively in the sun.

Now’s a good time.

California has a 2020 commitment to have 33% of all energy produced in state to come from the sun. They’re lowering Los Angeles solar costs in order to meet this goal.

Here are some tips for getting a cost-effective solar installation.

Solar Savings Los Angeles by Home

Each home has an optimal way to pull energy. Direction of the sun, roof angles, roof size, elevation, and a list of other factors all affect how much sun a panel can get. In order to go into a conversation with a contractor, have an idea of how much sun your panels will see.

With a calculator, it’s possible to get an estimate on how much solar costs in Los Angeles.

Getting the Right Solar Installation

Solar installers in Los Angeles are not a rarefied commodity. In the one state that truly, truly, benefits from solar energy, the competition will pile up by the curb just begging to nail a few panels to the roof. What is rare, is a good solar installer.

Cheaper is not always better. Contractors know that homeowners may be ill-advised when it comes to solar. This means either swollen prices, or poultry asking - both of which can leave a homeowner ripped off.

Given that a bad solar installation can outright halve the life expectancy of the project, it’s important to find the right LA solar installer.
