Solar power in Mira Loma, California

SCE provide net metering to their solar customers in Mira Loma. Net metering gives you retail value for every kWh of excess solar generation sent to the grid. If your solar system sends 1000 kWh to the grid and your home draws 800 kWh from the grid not only would this wipe out your bill but you'd receive the 200 kWh as credit to a future bill within the same 12 month billing cycle. If there is credit remaining at the end of the billing cycle SCE will deposit the money into your account. Unfortunately with the new NEM-2 Rules new solar customers need to switch to time of use billing reducing the returns by about 10% however, this isn't very much and with decreasing equipment prices and plenty of sunshine solar is a great investment.

30% of the total system cost can also be claimed as a deduction to federal taxes spread over however many years you want. There is also no size limit to receive the full 30%. With incentives currently this good and SCE and other utilities trying to kill off net metering the time to go solar is now!
