Consumers have been tapping into solar rebate programs so that they can maximize the amount of money back for going solar.
These programs have been especially generous in Southern California. For customers of Southern California Edison (SCE) solar rebates remain high, at about $1.10 per watt of solar energy systems installed. To put this amount into perspective, solar power costs homeowners an average of $6 per watt. So, you can save about 18% with this solar rebate program. Other solar incentives like the 30% available through the Residential Renewable Energy Tax Credit. Adding these together, you have practically slashed solar costs by 1/2. In other words, a solar panel system that costs $25,000 retail is only $12,500 after these generous rebate programs and rebates.
But you can’t continue to wait. The Solar rebate programs have a capacity limit, and then incentive levels drop in 1/2.
If you live in California, check the Statewide Trigger Tracker for updates. And, if you are not certain whether your home is within the SCE territory and qualifies for its rebates, if you live in the following counties: Los Angeles, Orange County, Santa Barbara, San Bernardino, Riverside, Ventura, Kern, Tulare and Inyo, you may be in luck.
