San Diego is blessed with abundant sunshine. It has some of the most expensive grid electricity in the country. And it also has a ton of solar incentives.
In other words, our County is ideally suited for solar energy. And nowhere is this more apparent than in Chula Vista, which has more photovoltaic (PV) installations than any other region of San Diego.
Chula Vista has some of the best programs and incentives for helping people embrace renewable energy. In many ways, the Chula Vista solar power boom is a microcosm of what the entire world could (and should) achieve.
What Are the Advantages of Being a Chula Vista Solar Power Customer?
So what programs does Chula Vista actually offer?
Let’s take a look:
1. Smoother Permitting

But even still, the waits and delays end up costing solar customers a lot of money. This is why municipal governments are trying to streamline the process and make everything more standardized.
Chula Vista has tried to simplify the process and make things more transparent. It outlines the steps involved with a fairly clear Solar Permitting Requirements Form.

3. Terrific Financing Options
- Residential customers can take advantage of Chula Vista’s Home Upgrade, Carbon Downgrade program.

There’s even a program for low-income families. The GRID Alternatives initiative helps to bring solar PV systems within easy financial reach (families can receive new solar installations for free – or nearly free).
What If You Don’t Live in Chula Vista?
Chula Vista has a pretty sweet deal. But what if you don’t live in this region of San Diego? Does going solar still make sense?
Although Chula Vista definitely leads the pack in many ways, the rest of San Diego isn’t too shabby. There are tons of great incentives and programs throughout the region. And by going solar today, you’ll reap all kinds of financial, environmental, and even health-related benefits.
