About 85 percent of all solar panel systems constructed in the U.S. are installed in California. In fact, California currently has more than 62,200 solar energy systems in operation, which translates to more than 600 megawatts (MW) installed throughout the Golden State. Leading the state in this eco-friendly movement towards the use of renewable energy sources is San Diego, which has the state’s second highest concentration of solar power cells only behind San Jose.
In addition to their environmental benefits, solar panel systems also pay off economically, as solar power systems decrease – if not eliminate – energy bills while also making their owners eligible for significant state and federal tax credits that can cover up to 40 percent of the cost of installing a solar energy system.
Solar energy panels are a reliable, long lasting and efficient source of energy. While some systems installed in the 1960s and 1970s are still in use today, modern solar panels are nearly four times more efficient than their earlier counterparts. This means they can generate up to 100 percent of a resident or commercial property’s energy needs.
