Solar PV

Electricity generated from solar photovoltaic (PV) panels will help California reach its decarbonization goals. Solar PV is a big part of the state's electrification plan. In fact, as of 2020, a state mandate requires that all new residential construction include solar PV panel installation. Installation of solar panels means lower energy bills, greater energy security, and a lower carbon footprint for homeowners.

When considering solar panel installation for your home, hiring a certified solar contractor with local expertise and excellent customer service is integral to the long-term success of your home's renewable energy source. With the Clean Energy Connection, California homeowners can quickly and easily find qualified solar panel installers.\

Generating Free and CLEAN Electricity With Solar Panels for Your Home

Even if the systems and appliances in your home run on electricity, you could still be relying on electricity generated from fossil fuels. California is far ahead of many other states concerning clean energy generation, but in 2019, more than a third of the electricity generation in the state was from fossil fuels.

Installing solar helps you use more clean electricity from renewable sources, lowering your home's carbon footprint while saving you money. Plus, any excess renewable energy generated from your solar panel system can be sent to the electric grid in return for net metering credits from your utility or stored using a home solar battery for later use or during a power outage.

Investing in Solar Energy With the Right Solar Contractor

The design and installation process for your solar PV system will determine how much electricity your panels produce and how long they last. A professional solar panel contractor considers many factors when installing PV panels, including:

  • The direction, pitch, and material of your roof

  • Your home's geographical location

  • Your home's historical energy use

  • Any opportunities in your home to reduce energy consumption (either through electrification measures or energy efficiency upgrades like new insulation)

  • The availability of local, state, and federal solar incentives

Solar is a smart, long-term investment for your home. We understand that finding the right solar PV installer is a top priority. You want a contractor with the experience to design and install a solar panel system and solar battery storage system to meet your home's energy needs for decades to come.
