South Pasadena Solar – LADWP Service Area

SOLAR SOURCE is very familiar with the solar process for South Pasadena LADWP customers as we have installed many solar systems in the LADWP service area since our doors opened in 2008.

As quoted from the LADWP website:

“A key element of LADWP’s renewable energy program is the development of local solar, particularly customer-based programs that tap into the city’s abundant sunshine and provide residents and businesses with the ability to generate their own power.

Local solar projects help LADWP to meet renewable energy targets and reduce the carbon footprint created by fossil fuel-burning power plants. Solar also brings economic benefits for LA as a catalyst for creating jobs and stimulating the green economy. Local solar projects also support the reliability of LADWP’s power grid. They are considered “distributed generation” and function as mini power plants that generate energy right where it is used.

To make solar more widely available to residential customers, especially those in neighborhoods with less access to solar technology, LADWP offers three residential solar programs: Solar Rooftops, Shared Solar, and Virtual Net Metering (VNEM), along with Feed in Tariff (FIT), a commercial customer program. These programs are designed to bring communities together to help transform the City of Los Angeles into a thriving solar economy.”

LADWP covers the cities of Los Angeles, Culver City, South Pasadena, and West Hollywood.

Using solar energy for all or even part of your Los Angeles home’s electrical needs sure makes sense. Grid-tied residential solar systems in Los Angeles are less expensive than ever and they also reduce the amount of electricity that you need to purchase from your local utility in Los Angeles. 

Your own residential or commercial solar system in Los Angeles will produce reliable and clean power that will reduce fossil fuel burning and contribute to a more healthy environment. Solar energy systems from us are quiet and they operate automatically. They require very little maintenance and don’t need any fuel except sunshine!

4 Reasons To Go Solar In Los Angeles

Return on Investment 

In the past, the cost of solar panels plus tax incentive rebates allowed homeowners to buy solar systems that would pay for themselves near the end of their lifecycle. Extreme price competition over the past few years has cut prices in half, moving your break-even point closer to the halfway point and underlining the notion that you will have a significant return on investment when you use solar. 

If you live in Southern California and are thinking of adding solar capacity, talk with our expert solar installers in Los Angeles to help you figure out the amount of money that you will save over what you are currently spending. We can also show you different installation options that can allow you to optimize how you utilize your appliances once you do have a solar array powering your home. 

Net Metering 3.0 Is Coming 

Although the local utilities have pointed out that Net 3.0 metering is designed to help move everyone forward, most people can’t help but notice that the net effect is for homeowners with solar to lose some of the advantages that they currently have. 

Help The Environment 

For years our company has been installing solar in Los Angeles and recognizes that our customers are conscientious about the environment. That is one of the many positive reasons that individuals decide to get a solar installation added to their home.  In addition to the cost savings on your monthly electricity bill, when you add a solar panel array to your home you are promoting clean air and renewable energy. 

And although you can’t always put a finger on how your solar helps the environment specifically, the interconnectedness of the world means that solar can certainly help out in places like Los Angeles. 

If everyone in Los Angeles switched to solar power generation, it would make it easier for the local utilities to offer electrical power dockside competitively, cutting down on the amount of extra pollution.  So do your part by installing a solar panel system for your home. 

Make Your Appliances More Efficient 

30 years ago, your air conditioner and your refrigerator were likely pretty inefficient compared to models that you can buy today. In addition, there are DC appliances like refrigerators that can help you save even more energy inside your home than you can with an AC electrical system. 

If you talk to the experts at a SOLAR SOURCE, we can tell you specifically how you can optimize your purchasing plan for appliances so that they can take full advantage of the solar panel system on your roof. 

Adding solar panels to your home makes sense in Southern California. You have a lot of sun that will drive energy creation that can put dollars back into your pocket because you are selling it to your local utility. If you buy a system this year, you will likely end up with more built-in advantages locally than you will if you wait. SOLAR SOURCE Los Angeles consultants are available to help you at any point in the process. 

Although Southern California already leads the Western United States in solar implementations, sales of new residential systems continue to climb because dynamics in the clean energy industry continue to change in consumers’ favor.  So take advantage of the solar revolution by choosing solar power for your Los Angeles home.
