Solar power in Granada Hills, California

LADWP offers a rebate for its solar customers besides the also great just net metering. Rebates are currently at $250 for residential and $300 per kW for commercial. On a common 5kW system that's $1,250 off! The biggest incentive of all is LADWP's net metering program, under this program solar customers export power to the grid to offset their power bill at a 1kWh for 1kWh rate. After paying off the power drawn from the grid you can either carry the credits forward for future bills or receive a check. Granada Hills has a far better net metering program since it doesn't require its customers to switch to time of use billing which hurts returns. There is also on top of all this the 30% federal solar tax credit. This tax credit has no system size limits and can be used in parts over many years. With funding for the rebate program close to running out don't wait around.
