Solar power in Reseda, California

LADWP offer a rebate program of $250 per kW for residential and $350 per kW for commercial alongside an excellent net metering plan. LADWP unlike SCE don't require customers to switch to time of use billing reducing the returns. Under net metering each kWh of unused solar generation sent to the grid offsets the cost of another kWh drawn from the grid. If more power has been exported then drawn from the grid within a particular month credit is still given at 1 for 1 to future bills within the same 12 month billing cycle. Any remaining credit at the end of the 12 months is deposited directly into your account.

After factoring in the rebate 30% of the remaining costs may be claimed as a deduction to federal taxes. The federal solar tax credit has no size limitations and may be spread over several years if you wish. With incentives like these you'd be crazy not to get solar in Reseda and don't wait since only about 10% of funding remains for the rebate program.
