Solar power in Hesperia, California
Southern California Edison offers its solar customers in Hesperia 1 for 1 net metering. Under net metering each kWh of unused solar generation is credited at the retail power rate and when more power is exported than drawn from the grid (normally the case) SCE can credit your account or carry credit forward up to one year after being obtained. With excellent sun exposure and the retail energy price going up net metering will make you a lot of money over the life of your system. Unfortunately under the new NEM-2 rules new solar customers must switch to time of use billing reducing the returns however, only by about 10% and with solar becoming cheaper and with great sun exposure in Hesperia solar is still a great investment.
There is also the 30% federal solar tax credit, with no limit to the size of the system. This tax credit may also be used over several years. With SCE and many legislatures fighting to kill solar there's no benefit from waiting.
