• With the looming deadline fast approaching, homeowners across the state of California are in a frenzy to switch to solar energy before the new regulations come into effect. 

    Everyone is trying to beat the clock and take advantage of the numerous incentives and benefits that come with solar power before April 14th - the day when new net metering rules will come into effect, slashing incentives for those looking to install solar panels on their homes.

    Although the new rules won't require solar systems to be installed by April 14th, homeowners must provide proof of a sales contract and an interconnection agreement to qualify for the current, more generous compensation rates.

    With experts predicting a reduction in compensation of over 70%, many homeowners are scrambling to find solar companies to conduct site surveys and start the installation process before the deadline. The clock is ticking, and the pressure is on - will homeowners be able to make the switch to solar in time?

    Contact us today at 866-787-6527 to lock in solar once and for all!
