Did you know that when you switch to solar power, utility companies automatically put you on one of their solar rate plans or solar time of use plans (TOU)? The move ensures they continue to get their revenue, even though a household has switched to solar. In this recent industry report “Guide to Solar Rate Plans,'' Option One Solar examines the Time of Use billing processes put into place by Southern California Edison, (SCE), San Diego Gas & Electric, (SDGE), and Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), and explains why their own kilowatt-hour solar power installation system blocks you from being exploited and ensures you save money.

In their report, Option One Solar examines rate plans from the three biggest utility providers in the region to emphasize the importance of a properly sized solar panel system.

The report also explains net energy metering, a program that calculates solar energy vs. utility energy consumption to determine whether you owe money to the utility company, or if they owe you a rebate. This is why your solar system needs to be the right size.

The solar system design process offered by Option One Solar uses an annual kilowatt-hour calculation that prevents you from over-paying utility companies and helps you begin saving money immediately.
