Solar Battery Storage For San Diego Homes

One important way to ensure you are taking advantage of all that a solar energy system has to offer is to include a solar battery backup in your system. With an Enphase solar battery backup, you can store any excess energy you’ve generated during the peak solar hours and use it at night or when there’s one of those infamous California blackouts. Solar batteries are great protection against almost any kind of outage. They also can save you money by letting you decide when to use your own energy and when to use energy from the grid.

There is even more good news for California when it comes to solar batteries. Unlike in most other states, California offers a generous incentive for adding a battery to your solar system.

This incentive is called the Self-Generation Incentive Program and in preparation for the next wildfire season, the CPUC has authorized funding of more than $1 billion through 2024 for SGIP.

San Diego Solar Rebates, Solar Incentives and Tax Credits

California is the most solar-friendly state in the country, offering many programs to make going solar in San Diego easier. With the rising cost of electricity, the money you’ll save on electricity will offset the cost of your panels much more quickly.** Let’s take a look at some of the programs you can get in California.

  • Federal solar tax credit – Starting in 2022, the federal government is offering a tax credit worth 30% of the cost of your solar system, including labor costs and batteries.*
  • Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) – Although California doesn’t offer a statewide tax credit, it does offer incentives for homeowners to install renewable energy generation equipment at their home. California’s SGIP is one of the most innovative incentives in the country.
  • Property tax exemption – Adding a solar energy system can increase your home’s value by $20 for every watt of solar capacity you install, but that doesn’t mean you have to pay higher property taxes. California has a property tax exemption for that added value.
