Bakersfield Homeowners Can Look To Solar for Savings
Bakersfield is all about authenticity. It came through in the raw edge of the famous “Bakersfield Sound” music movement in the 1950s, and it comes through today in the genuine smiles of people living in this vibrant community. Bakersfield is a great place to raise a family, but electricity rates are on the rise here, just like everywhere else in California.
Solar panels and savings accounts are best friends
You may have noticed that savings accounts and electricity bills don’t get along. Despite your turning the lights off after the kids all day, and resisting the AC until the most unbearably hot summer days, that electricity bill is as greedy as ever. Even if you’re using less power, the rates go up and you feel like you’re still just treading water.
Choosing rooftop solar power is a great way to break this escalating cycle. In fact, solar installations in Bakersfield are taking off like never before. That’s because people are realizing that as utility rates rise year after year, the sooner they make the move to solar, the better. Their savings increase every year.
That means while others around you groan a little louder with the arrival of that electric bill, you’ll breathe a sigh of relief (and maybe even do a little victory dance). It feels good knowing the checks you used to write to your power company can now be put toward things like your kid’s college tuition savings or your retirement funds. And hey, using clean energy and doing your part to help the environment doesn’t keep you up at night either.

Battery storage: smart savings on the next level
With battery storage, the solar power your panels produce is yours to keep. If a solar system produces more power than what gets used, solar customers usually rely on net metering credits for the energy they feed into the grid. But battery storage makes it possible to save that extra power for when you need it later.
Storing and then releasing power when you need it most will make a huge difference as California moves into time-of-use (TOU) metering. When that happens, you’ll pay extra for power when you really need it. You can avoid those price hikes with battery storage, and you’ll always have a backup power source in case of a power outage.
