Stack up your solar savings in sunny San Marcos, CA

San Marcos is settled north of San Diego County, California, and it’s quick access to freeways and proximity to major cities make it an ideal place for all people. For foodies, the restaurants are plentiful; for partiers, the nightlife is marvelous; and for nature enthusiasts, there’s an astounding park-and-hiking-trail galore.    

And of course, there’s the climate; where the coldest it gets is sweatshirt-level. The only serious nuisance for folks here is the cost paid for electricity because the average residential rate is almost 38% higher vs. other states.1 So if you’re tired of dealing with a money-sucking bill, why not put the 265 sunny days per year your city receives2 to send those high rates into oblivion? Sunrun’s in if you’re in.
