Solar power in California has been growing rapidly. The most recent Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS), SB 100 effective January 1, 2019, requires that 60% of California’s electricity come from renewable resources by 2030, and 100% by 2045. Much of this is expected to come from solar power.

California is one of the best places in the nation to install solar panels.

A combination of good average sun exposure, expensive utility electricity rates, the solar tax credit and the strong net metering law means that homeowners can get an excellent return by installing residential solar panels here.
