Solar Panels in Sacramento, CA
Sacramento, the capital of California, is known as the “City of Trees”, thanks to its abundant urban forest. One way residents can keep Sacramento green is by switching to clean renewable energy for their home. Having solar panels installed on your home in Sacramento is a great way to not only keep the environment clean but also save money. Electricity prices in Sacramento are 31% higher than the national average and 2% higher than California average electricity prices.
Homeowners in Sacramento like you have already started to embrace residential solar to power their homes. With California being the top state for blackouts, solar panels can provide reliable energy instead of the untrustworthy power grid.
If you’re thinking of going solar, one of the best places to do it is in Sacramento, CA.
Climate is one of the elements that make a city prime for solar. Sacramento, California, averages 269 days of sunshine a year, well above the U.S. average of 205 days. With more sun, there are more opportunities to produce solar energy to power your home – and even earn credits for the excess energy your solar panel system produces.

Step 1 of 3:
Sacramento Solar Panel Incentives, Tax Breaks and Rebates
Residential solar panel installations in California are more affordable and accessible than ever. In fact, in just the last 5 years the cost of solar panels in California has decreased 36%. Solar energy in California is only expected to grow, largely in part to the available incentives, tax breaks and rebates. Let’s break them down:
Federal Solar Tax Credit
One of the most lucrative solar incentives comes from the United States Federal Government in the form of The Solar Investment Tax Credit, also known as the ITC. With this federal tax credit, California residents can receive a 30% credit on the entire solar system cost (even an accompanying backup battery!)*
Solar Panels and the Value of Your Home
The proof is in the data and homeowners will be excited to know that solar panels add value to your home, making them even more worth your investment. You can expect on average $20 of value for every $1 you save on your electric bill with solar panels. There are big perks even when you are ready to sell your home as well. Solar panels can help your property spend less time on the market. In a study done by NREL, they found that solar properties sold about 20% faster and even earned about 17% more at closing. This is a big incentive for homeowners to switch to solar energy.
California Property Tax Exemption
An increase in home value typically comes with an increase in property taxes as well – but not in California! Under the Property Tax Exclusion for Solar Energy Systems, 100% of the assessed value of the solar system is exempt from the homeowner’s property taxes.
California Net Metering (NEM)
NEM 3.0 is California’s net metering program from the California Public Utility Commission. For every kilowatt-hour (kWh) of solar electricity you feed into the power grid, your utility company actually pays you with credits on your monthly electric bill! The value of your energy is determined by an avoided cost calculator, which takes into consideration time of export factors, such as time of day and even day of the week.
Homeowners who decide to add a solar battery backup to their system can take advantage of self-consumption. When time-of-use rates are high, you could be using your own stored energy to power your home and gain access to even more savings.***

Solar Battery Storage
Net metering isn’t the only option for the energy your solar panel system produces in excess, though. You can keep that energy for yourself! Instead of sending it back to the grid for credits through a net metering program, you can store it through a solar battery. Solar battery storage systems allow you to use the reserve energy for times of lower energy production.
Using solar batteries such as the Enphase Encharge or Tesla Powerwall, gives you the power to run your home during the night, through weather events or grid blackouts. California is one of the most blackout-prone states and sees more than any other state in the nation. The demand on electricity grids is higher than ever and supply can’t keep up making them unreliable. Don’t get caught in the dark, a solar battery system can provide reliable solar energy for your family
