With Sunrun Solar, You’ll Be the One in Control of Your Home Energy
Even though Davis, California shines in areas such as education and safety, many residents agree that the cost of living in the city is too high. In fact, life in Davis is 50% higher compared to the national average,1 and the rates of home electricity alone are around 30% more expensive than in other U.S. states.2
Davis gets plenty of sunshine each year, which add up to 260 sunny days.3 If you choose to team up with Davis solar companies like Sunrun, you’ll be able to control your electric bill for years to come while also reducing your home’s carbon emissions.
California Is One of the Best States to Produce Your Own Energy
In addition to the savings you could generate from your roof, California residents are also eligible for some great solar incentives.
The incentives include California’s Net Energy Metering (NEM) policy allowing residents to receive bill credits for the excess energy they create,4 and local rebates depending on the performance of the home solar system; as well as a 30% federal tax credit if you choose to buy your system.5
