One of our largest installations, this system boasts 60 LG 300W panels and Enphase 250 microinverters.
Average Monthly Production: 2,304 KwH Average Monthly Electric Bill before Install: $1,534 Estimated Average Bill after Install: $634 Estimated Monthly Savings: $899 Estimated Annual Savings: $10,788Santaluz
We installed 28 LG 300-watt modules with Enphase 250 microinverters on this Rancho Santa Fe home in 2013.
Constructed above the homeowner's garage, this system is an example of a flat roof installation. Average Monthly Production: 1,124 kWh Estimated Portion of Electricity Produced by Solar: 96% Estimated Average Bill after Install: $15Rancho Sante Fe
This was San Diego County Solar's first job and we are really proud of it.
This is a 26-module system comprised of Sanyo panels and Enphase microinverters. Average Monthly Output: 8,659 kWh Average Monthly Electricity Bill before Solar: $242 Estimated Average Monthly Electricity Bill after Solar: $57 Estimated Annual Savings: $2,226La Costa
Installed in 2013, this 39-module system features LG 290-watt panels and Enphase 250 microinverters.
To integrate the panels with the Spanish tile roof, we removed the tiles and laid down a composition roof. We then reinstalled tiles around the system, allowing the panels to lay almost flush with the surrounding tiles. Average Monthly Output: 1,384 kWh Average Monthly Electric Bill before Install: $691 Estimated Average Bill after Install: $119 Estimated Monthly Savings: $572 Estimated Annual Savings: $6,862Encinitas
While we are local to North County, San Diego County Solar is happy to install anywhere in San Diego County.
This job in El Cajon turned out beautifully. Completed in 2012, the 32-panel system produces almost 90% of this happy homeowner's electricity. Average Monthly Output: 987 kWh Average Monthly Electric Bill before Install: $246 Estimated Average Bill after Install: $18 Estimated Monthly Savings: $228 Estimated Annual Savings: $2,741El Cajon

HERO Financing is available for a wide array of home energy and water efficient products and renewable energy systems
Solar photovoltaic systems convert the sun's energy into electricity so that it can be directly used by the house as it is produced. A solar panel is a group of solar cells that collect sunlight and convert it into electricity. The majority of solar panels commercially sold today are constructed using crystalline silicon, but other types are also available. Multiple solar panels (or "arrays") are required for most buildings in order to meet the partial or full electricity requirements for that building. PV arrays can be permanently fixed, preferably facing south, or installed using a tracking device so the panels follow the sun as it moves. Solar PV systems also generally include an inverter, with one inverter covering multiple panels.HERO Registered Contractor
