It is now December, and the holiday season is upon us. December is also a mont of high electricity usage. In addition to more gatherings and parties (increased usage of lights and appliances), many are putting up their holiday lights for the season. But how much does it cost to light up a house? And
Solar install in Alamo, California. This system consists of 22 SunPower 345-watt solar panels paired with a SolarEdge inverter. While this site will have some shade, the SolarEdge inverter includes individual optimizers for each panel. This means that even if one panel is shaded, SolarEdge is able to optimize the production of other panels.
The solar eclipse might be over, but there is still one more place to see its impact. While we in California might have only seen a partial solar eclipse on Monday, that doesn’t mean that we were unaffected. If you have a solar system, check out your monitoring portal and see the drop in production
A solar install in Pleasanton, California. This system consists of 32 SolarWorld 290 Mono Black panels, an all-black panel. SolarWorld panels are manufactured in the USA at Hillsboro, Oregon (located just west of Portland). The system is paired with Enphase microinverters. We expect this system to produce 11,488 kilowatts of electricity in its first year.
Different brands of solar panels offer different levels of power output. For example, we sell both SunPower 345 watt panels as well as Mitsubishi 275 watt panels. A common misconception is that because each SunPower panel outputs more electricity, they are of higher quality. In reality, both companies have extensive experience in manufacturing high quality
Solar install in San Ramon, California. This system consists of 25 Mitsubishi 270 watt panels and uses Enphase microinverters. We estimate this system to produce 9412 kilowatts in its first year, completely offsetting their electric usage. And so far, actual production is exceeding our projections by over 20%. With Enphase microinverters, there is no single

PG&E’s NEM 2 took effect for new solar interconnection applications completed on or after December 16, 2016. For PG&E to consider an application complete, it requires the solar system to pass the City’s final inspection. A copy of the signed Permit must be included with the application. NEM 2 activated when 5% of electricity being generated
