PG&E customers continue to see rising rates in California. Are you ready for your summer electric bills?
Electricity prices are continuing to increase in California, and it’s not looking like that will change anytime soon.
With a consistent increase of about 3% each year over the past decade, it has left many people wondering what they can do to make their bills more predictable, especially in the summer when many people are using more energy to keep their homes comfortable.
During the summer, San Luis Obispo County can see temperatures get well into the 90 degree range. For many people, this means they will start using their AC much more frequently, which increases the cost of your electricity bill significantly. For example, a 4-ton air conditioner can burn around 4.62 kilowatts of energy per hour. If you were to run this HVAC system all day for three months you could be paying an extra $1,000 on your electricity bill.
Luckily, switching to solar has become an affordable option for many homeowners. Solar power can offset some or all of the costs of your electricity bill to help you keep your home comfortable all year round. Since summer provides longer days with more sun, your system will generate more power giving you more savings while also reducing your carbon footprint.
With multiple financing options, making the switch to solar is more feasible than ever. Most solar financing options require no money down and reduce your monthly expenses starting the day of installation.
