Solar power in Agoura Hills, California

SCE offer net metering to their solar customers in Agoura Hills. Under net metering energy exported to the grid is given full retail value. 200kWh of unused solar generation sent to the grid will offset the cost of 200kWh drawn. If more power is exported within a month retail value is still given to future bills within the same 12 month billing cycle. Remaining credit at the end of the 12 months is deposited into your account. Under the new NEM-2 new solar customers must switch to time of use billing reducing the returns by about 10% luckily, this is miniscule and with declining equipment prices and great sun exposure going solar in the Agoura Hills is still a great investment.

If you have a taxable income 30% of the total system cost can be claimed as a deduction to your federal taxes. The federal solar tax credit has no system size limit and can be used in increments. Net metering and a 30% tax credit make solar a must have home investment.
