Solar Tailored to Your Home Energy Needs in Pleasanton, CA with Sunrun
Pleasanton is gorgeous; stunning vineyards, beautiful parks and a picturesque downtown. This California town is identified as one of the most favorite places to live by a number of high profile publications.1 It’s close to San Francisco and Silicon Valley, and it’s part of the techno-growth that is spilling over into what is called the Tri-Valley in the East Bay.2
Hotter Weather Means Higher Utility Bills
Pleasanton can also get hot. The city has a Mediterranean climate3 which obviously means high summer temperatures - and climate change and harmful greenhouse gas emissions aren’t making things any cooler. As soon as you get over the Bay Bridge and head inland toward Pleasanton the temperatures rise. In other words, people are running their air conditioning in the summer. It’s a necessity.
We all know what this means. Large energy bills and rolling blackouts when too many people are using too much energy to cool off their homes. In fact, Californians pay a lot to power up their homes.4 Residents pay 40% more for electricity, on average, than the rest of America.5
Solar Power Can Lower Your Utility Bills & Ensure a Green Future
Pleasanton, CA is doing its part to create a greener planet. City governments all over California understand that residents care very much about the health of our planet, and Pleasanton is no different. The city adopted a Climate Action Plan roughly six years ago to help the State of California fight climate change.6
Going solar can definitely reduce your monthly utility bill. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) states that a big benefit of going solar is that you can use it when electricity rates are the most expensive. And that’s when people use power the most, after work and at night. To meet the needs of residents during peak hours, utility companies often have to fire up less efficient power plants that have a higher carbon-intensive energy mix.7 With solar? No bad emissions with renewable energy and a lower bill. Who can’t get behind that?
