California’s New Solar Panel Requirements

January 17, 2020

Recently, California has passed legislation that will require new homes in the state to have solar panels installed on the building. The legislation also includes an incentive for people to add a battery to their home so that the sun’s energy can be stored after it is produced.

It is projected to save homeowners a large amount of money on energy bills over the course of a typical 30-year mortgage. It’s also predicted that adding solar panels to your home will increase its value. California has been battling extreme weather events in the past few years. Solar panels will allow for residents who may be affected by power outages to have access to power.

California has often started trends with the environmental policies that are implemented. The state now has the objective of obtaining all of its electricity from renewable energy sources. This new legislation will also go a long way toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The new regulations will help the state with its main goal of achieving its carbon-neutral energy status.
