Solar power in Glendora, California
Southern California Edison offers net metering to its solar customers in Glendora. This is great news; net metering makes it very easy to completely wipe out your electrical bill with solar.
Available also is the federal solar tax credit, allowing part of the total system cost no matter the size to be claimed as deduction to federal taxes. This incentive may also be spread over several years.
With net metering allowing great returns and part of the cost covered by the ITCm a normal 5kW system pays for itself in 5-6 years.
Be sure not to wait around since SCE is doing everything they can to abolish net metering!
Net Metering Broken Down
Net metering requires your utility to monitor excess solar generation sent to the grid and power drawn from the grid such as at night. You only get billed if you export less kWh than consumed from the grid.
In Glendora, solar makes a lot of energy and usually more power is exported, excess is credited at the retail power price.
Credits can be applied to bills within the same 12 month billing cycle. Any credits remaining at the end of the 12 months will be deposited into your account.
With the new NEM-2 rules new solar customers must switch to time of use billing with SCE which hurts returns by about 10%; however, this is miniscule and with equipment prices falling and great sunshine, Glendora is a great place to go solar.
