Basics | Blackouts! | CA Rebate | Costs | Systems


If California blackouts and sky-high energy bills have you seeing red, perhaps it's time you created your own source of electricity. Photovoltaic (solar) systems offer the cleanest and most-efficient way to "manufacture" your own power.

Thousands of Californians just like you are installing solar energy systems that power their homes during blackouts, and actually turn their electricity meters backwards during periods of low usage.

Plus, the California Energy Commission has recognized the importance of private renewable energy sources, and is offering a rebate to cover part of the costs of a new energy system.

In this picture, an Energy Alternatives customer watches as his new photovoltaic system spins his electricity meter in reverse.

Even without a tiered energy pricing plan, a solar system can mean noticable savings on your utility bills. With tiered pricing (as implemented in California), the output of an alternative energy system may keep your power usage below the next price-increase threshold. This can add up to significant savings.

Energy Alternatives has over 20 years experience installing renewable energy systems in Northern California. We'll help you decide which solar system is best for your needs, install it quickly and cleanly, and help you fill out the necessary paperwork to qualify for the California rebate program.

There truly has never been a better time to install your own solar system.
