The California AB 811 initiative provided San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders with a green light to move forward with his aggressive plan to help property owners throughout the City of San Diego purchase and install solar power systems in their homes and commercial properties. The new program would allow San Diego residents the ability to add solar panels to their roofs via privately financed loans, paid for through their property tax bills over the course of a 20 year period.
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the Assembly Bill 811 in July 2008, allowing California cities to provide low-interest loans to homeowners and small business owners who were looking to conserve energy by installing solar panels. The bill allows financing for other energy-saving projects as well such as installing dual panel windows.
Benefits of Solar Panel Installations
Each year more and more Californians are jumping on board with the idea of conserving energy. This is especially true in San Diego. The new legislation allows for more individuals, families and small business owners to participate in the green movement by installing solar panels on their homes and commercial properties.
There are many benefits of solar panels in San Diego and throughout California, including:
- Solar panels make use of renewable energy from the sun
- Environmentally friendly way of collecting solar energy
- They do not produce any form of pollution
- Solar power frees property owners from their dependence on energy suppliers, allowing them to own their power rather than rent it
- Solar power is an abundant source of energy, whereas fossil fuel supplies are in decline
