Net Metering in San Diego – a Recipe for Happiness?

At Sunline Energy, we’re huge supporters of San Diego’s net metering program.

And we’re thrilled that this awesome incentive has been extended for the next couple of years.

Why do we like this program so much?

Imagine the following 3 scenarios:

  • You come home from a long day at the office, and the weather is unseasonably hot (or cool).  You have to adjust your thermostat to make your house comfortable.  But you make this adjustment without a care in the world.
  • You host out-of-towners for the holidays.  With all those extra guests, your electricity bill would normally shoot up exponentially.  But you welcome the in-laws into your home, 100% worry-free.
  • You read in the papers that SDG&E is raising its electricity prices once again.  This year alone, prices jumped up 40% for some unlucky customers.  But you?  You just finish your coffee and go about your day.

You are a sea of calm.  A rock.  Completely indifferent to rising energy prices or unexpected guests.

How is that possible?

It’s possible because of the net metering program in San Diego.

Net Metering in San Diego – What Is It & Why Should You Care?

We’ve covered net metering before (here and here).  But in a nutshell, it’s a special solar incentive that allows you to sell excess clean electricity back to the utility company at a profit.

That’s right.  The utility companies actually pay you – instead of the reverse.

With enough solar panels on your rooftop, you can even have $0 electricity bills every month.  Some customers install even larger systems so they can power their electric vehicles (instead of going to the gas station).

Imagine receiving free money… to do something good for the environment.

That’s why we love net metering.

But San Diego’s Net Metering Program Can Be Confusing

Ok.  So the program is awesome.  But it can also be a little confusing.  Worse still, inclusion in net metering isn’t automatic.

Some unfortunate customers go through the entire installation process (inspections, financing, installation, etc.) only to discover that they’re not enrolled in net metering.

But at Sunline Energy, we remove all the guesswork and hassle.  Once you contract our expert solar installation services, we walk you through the entire net metering process – from start to finish.

This complementary service comes standard with all Sunline Energy installations.

Total calm.  Complete indifference to rising energy prices.  And a healthier bank account.
