Cities up and down California consistently make the news when it comes to managing the negative effects of climate change; new and ongoing renewable energy efforts,1 state-of-the-art battery technologies changing the way we think about solar2 (i.e., Tesla and Sunrun™), and startup businesses using sustainable energy to make, grow and sell their products for a healthier planet. California does it all.
Orange, California is no different.3 This city is a part of the larger Orange County region and gets more than 280 sunny days a year.4 A county population of 3.17 million means a lot of rooftops for solar energy installations, and Sunrun™ is proud to say that we are on quite a few of these roofs... and counting.
And there are a lot of early adopters to home energy storage using high-tech batteries in Southern California5 (and not just high-tech cell phones). Battery storage is critical in keeping those houses running during blackouts or during peak hours of use when utility prices are the most expensive.6
California and its utilities lead the nation in rebates and federal tax credits for residential solar installation. Although an entire installation could be roughly $20k - these rebates and credits can reduce your solar installation costs by thousands.7 Yes, we said thousands of dollars.
Make sure your solar company helps you explore these incentives, like we do here at Sunrun. We’ll walk you through every dollar that’s available to you at both the federal and state levels in Orange, CA.8
Orange could be the new green (we couldn’t resist). California has some of the highest utility prices in the U.S.9 and going solar can rein in energy costs that are a big drain on household budgets. It can also help rein in our carbon-footprint, too, and help keep our planet green.
There are big benefits to going solar when you need to plug in that air conditioner during 110+ degree weather (unfortunately, not uncommon in California due to global warming). During these peak hours of use when everybody is turning on their air conditioners, utility prices are the most expensive.
Plus - to meet demand - utility companies often have to turn to less efficient power sources that produce a lot of harmful greenhouse gases. By going solar you are going green,10 saving the planet and keeping that green in your wallet where it belongs.
With our Brightbox™ battery storage option, City of Orange residents can take the stored energy collected during the day by their solar panels, and use it at night when they need it the most (and not pay a dime more).
Some states like California charge TOU (time-of-use) rates that are higher if you use electricity after work, during supper and before bedtime. Basically, the time when we all must plug in to power up our lives. For many of us, that’s the only time to do chores. With solar battery plus storage, and locking in at today’s rates with Sunrun options, you’ll never have to think about rising energy prices for decades to come.
