Listen up — you are running out of time to lock in your solar energy savings rate with Pacific Gas and Electric!
California is one of the nation’s largest solar energy markets, but new legislation by the California Public Utilities Commission is reducing the residential export rate for solar energy with PG&E.
Fortunately, you still have time. If you sign up for solar energy for your home today, you can lock in an export rate of around, which equals approximately $0.30 per kWh for the energy you add back to the grid. Waiting is not an option — after the new legislation comes into effect, your export rate will only be $0.08 per kWh per hour. That’s a dramatic 75% savings loss for any energy you push back to the grid.
The lower export rate will increase the payback period for solar panel owners and decrease your overall savings year after year.
You still have time to cash in on the current export rates by applying for net metering today. To lock in your savings rate, you only have until April 14, 2023, to apply for solar power with your utility company!
Do you want to learn more about solar power and how you can lock in your rate before April 14, 2023? Contact Energy Savings Pros today to get the process started. You’ll never be able to get a rate this good again! Our solar panel company serves Sacramento and Loomis, California, and the nearby communities.
The following are some frequently asked questions regarding solar panels in Sacramento and surrounding areas.
NEM stands for Net Energy Metering. It is a program provided by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), and San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E) to aggressively encourage switching to solar energy.
NEM allows you to earn credits for producing extra power (more than you need to power your home or business) via solar and adding it back to the California power grid.
In December 2022, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) voted to approve the latest version of NEM. Unfortunately, NEM 3.0 significantly reduces the net energy metering rates. In fact, this new agreement cuts the value of solar energy credits by 75%. Fortunately, if you sign up with solar today with Energy Saving Pros, you can lock in the rate as stated in the NEM 2.0 agreement.
The last day to sign up for solar energy at the NEM 2.0 solar energy credit rate is April 14, 2023. Don’t delay! You are leaving thousands of dollars on the table if you sign up after this date. You will miss out on up to 75% solar energy savings if you sign up after April 14.
Yes, NEM 3.0 will significantly impact your solar payback timeline. For people who sign up for solar under NEM 2.0, the average payback time is 5-6 years. But under NEM 3.0, the payback period will shift to 10 years or more on average. That’s a significant difference, and it’s the reason why we don’t recommend waiting to sign up. Contact Energy Saving Pros today, and we can lock you into the NEM 2.0 rate before it changes.
First, contact our solar panel team at Energy Saving Pros. Our knowledgeable staff will lead you through the process. To qualify for NEM 2.0 metered energy rates, you must complete your interconnection application, provide an electrical drawing of the system, and sign the contract.
Don’t be stressed out by the application process. Our team is available to help!
Yes! If you recently installed solar panels, you qualify for NEM 2.0 because your contract was signed while NEM 2.0 was still active. Even if you haven’t signed up for solar yet, you still have time! Contact Energy Saving Pros today to begin the application to lock in your savings rates before April 14, 2023.
That is a great question. Even if your original system was installed under NEM 1.0 or NEM 2.0 guidelines, if you replace your system after April 14, 2023, when NEM 3.0 takes effect, your savings rate will drop by 75% to those stated in the NEM 3.0 guidelines.
That means if you want to lock in your NEM 2.0 rates, you need to fill out your application to replace your solar panel system now. Our solar company, Energy Saving Pros can assist, so call our office today.
Because the date to lock in your metered energy savings rates is quickly closing in, we expect thousands of California residents to sign up in the next month. Because installation requests are increasing, there soon may be a waitlist regarding your installation date.
But there is good news — as long as you sign up before April 14, 2023, you have three years to connect your solar system to the grid and still reap the benefits provided under NEM 2.0. You need to spring into action. Contact Energy Saving Pros to learn more and begin your application.
The time to act is now! Call Energy Saving Pros to lock in the rate provided under the terms of NEM 2.0. Our knowledgeable team will answer all of your questions and get the application process started.
