Walnut Creek Solar Panel Installation
Walnut Creek, California and the surrounding Contra Costa/ East Bay area, is one of the best areas in the country for solar panel installation. The weather is sunny and warm through much of the year, which is optimal for producing solar electricity. In addition, the state of California and PG&E offer financial incentives for solar installation.
Solar Financial Incentives available for Walnut Creek (and Contra Costa) Residents: The California Solar Initiative provides a cash rebate per watt of panel installed, which ranges from $1.10-$1.80/watt. While that may not sound like a lot, the average residential solar panel system is 2-6 kilowatts in size. A $1.50 rebate on a 4 kilowatt system, would equal a cash rebate of $6,000. There are additional incentives for low-income homes and multi-resident properties. You then also receive a federal tax credit of up to 30% of the total installation cost.
Solar Installation Costs in the Walnut Creek area: PV panel installation costs vary depending on a number of factors, including the size of the system, the panels used, and construction costs. An average 4 bedroom home will required a 2-6 kilowatt (kW) system. After rebates, this usually costs about $13-19,000. While that's no small chunk of change, the systems should pay for itself in 5-7 years in energy savings. Because the panels are usually warrantied for 20-25 years, you will have 15-20 years of free electricity. The state of California also offers low-interest loans for solar installation and many companies are popping up with solar lease programs.
