Solar power in Encino, California
LADWP offer a rebate program for their solar customers in Encino. Rebates are set at $250 per kW for residential and $300 per kW for commercial installations. Net metering is also provided crediting each kWh of surplus solar generation at the same value as another drawn from the grid at a later time making it easy to wipe out your power bill. With great sunshine often more power is exported than consumed, this excess is credited at the retail rate for power. Net metering credit can be carried forward and used to offset future bills within the same 12 month billing cycle, any remaining credit at the end of the 12 months is deposited into your account. Luckily customers of LADWP don't need to switch to time of use billing like with SCE.
After subtracting your rebate 30% of the system cost may be claimed as a reduction to federal taxes. The federal solar tax credit can be used over several years and has no limit to the system size. With the rebate program running out of funding don't wait another minute, incentives won't get better than they are now ever!
