San Diego Solar Power Location

San Diego is known as America’s Finest City, but the area has a lot more going for it than just near-perfect Mediterranean weather and miles of pristine beaches. San Diego County also is a great location for solar energy, with abundant sunshine and clear blue skies nearly year-round.

San Diego has twice been ranked as the solar capital of the United States, for two separate rating periods in 2009 and again in 2012. According to data from the California Solar Initiative, San Diego has more solar roof tops than any other city in the United States – an astounding 3,500 systems generating more than 27,000 kilowatts of solar power. That’s a lot of sunshine.

In fact, if San Diego was its own country, it would rank in the top 25 of all nations in terms of solar capacity. For example, the city generates more solar power than the entire country of Mexico.

Your San Diego Solar Power Leader

Among San Diego solar power providers, Sullivan Solar Power is a proven leader. Our company has installed more solar energy systems in San Diego than any other company. That’s a big reason why we are a top-ranked San Diego solar energy firm, a distinction we are very proud of.

While San Diego as a whole is a great location for solar power, not all cities in the area are created equal. Some parts of the county receive more sunshine or are otherwise better suited for solar power.

The San Diego County cities or unincorporated areas that have the most solar capacity are:

  • San Diego
  • Escondido
  • Chula Vista
  • Poway
  • El Cajon
  • Fallbrook
  • Valley Center
  • Carlsbad
  • La Mesa

You installed a solar panel system for us about 10 years ago, and it continues to work well. My question is this: we are planning a remodel soon, and as part of that project we want to increase our solar generating capacity. Do government and utility rebates apply to such a project?
