Solar power in Menifee, California

Southern California Edison offers net metering for its solar customers in Menifee. Net metering is when SCE records how much power your solar system exports to the grid and how much energy your home draws from the grid and bills or credits depending on if your solar system exported or your home drew more. Excess credit after paying off your bill can be given to you as a credit on a future bill up to 12 months or SCE can write you a check. The new NEM-2 net metering rules require new solar customers to switch to time of use billing and this does damages returns however, by only about 10% and with equipment prices for solar systems falling and excellent solar production in Southern California solar is still one of the best investments you can make. There is also the 30% federal solar tax credit where in one or many tax periods up to 30% of the solar system's total cost can be claimed as a tax deduction. This tax credit also has no price cap or size limit, it's 30% no matter the size! With utilities and many lawmakers fighting these incentives the time to switch to solar is now!
