Photovoltaic (PV) power generating systems turn sunlight into electricity. When sunlight hits panels, they generate an electric current, which is converted, via an inverter, into electricity to power your home. Your home remains connected to the electricity grid, so any electricity needs not provided by your system are simply and automatically drawn from the grid and provided by your utility.
Powering your home with clean, renewable solar energy has never been easier. With California Solar Initiative (CSI) rebates through your Program Administrator, you can lower monthly utility bill. Plus, solar generating systems can be a sound investment that can increase the overall value of your home.
There is currently a 30% federal tax credit based on the overall solar generating system cost. Depending on your individual circumstances, together these rebates can reduce the cost of your system by more than 50%. Financing arrangements that can reduce your upfront costs to zero and/or allow you to pay for your system over many years.
