Solar power in Stockton, California

PG&E offer their Stockton customers net metering giving you 1 for 1 credit with their retail power price for power your solar system exports to the grid. Excess energy after covering your bill is carried to future months at the same value. At the end of the yearly billing cycle each kWh is credited at 3-4 cents per kWh and deposited into your account. The best aspect of net metering is that most homeowners aren't home during the day using power meaning more credit is received from PG&E.

The federal ITC allows for 30% of the system costs to be claimed as a deduction to federal income taxes. The federal tax credit can be spread over several years to better suit anyones financial situation.
