What Does The Solar Process Look Like in Cerritos, California?

10 Aug 2021

Are you thinking about getting solar for your home or business in Cerritos, California? The Cerritos building department explains the process here about how to apply for a solar permit.

The good news for you, if you hire us, we will take care of the solar permitting process on your behalf.

After we meet with you and the solar agreement is signed, we will start work on the solar plans for your project. Once the plans are complete, we will work with the City of Cerritos on the permitting process.

Once we have permit in hand, we will work with you to figure out a timeline for the solar installation. Once the installation is complete, we will schedule an inspection with the City of Cerritos. Upon receiving the approval from the City, we will begin the Net Energy Metering process with the Utility. If you live in Cerritos, the utility company is Southern California Edison. Once the application is submitted, Southern California Edison will send us an approval of the Net Energy Metering in less than a month (most of the time). Once approved you will receive credit for your power production.

  • I had a really wonderful experience with installing solar at my home. The Solar Source team was responsive and kept a me informed each step of the way. Permits were pulled without any effort on my part and the installation team was friendly and respectful. I am proud to share that my utility bill is at zero most months and I am saving money as a result of the installation. I highly recommend Solar Source!

  • Thanks Solar Source so very much for being helpful, cost conscious, working with the belligerent City of Long Beach and taking care of all the challenges to make my installation absolutely perfect.I’m now at $1.90/month just enough to keep me tied to the grid, and saving around $300/month since I have a swimming pool.Again, highest praise!
